Presented by 2015 Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain and Zoe Ball, the 12-part series will delve into kitchens across the country in search of Britain’s best family of cooks.
Judging the contestants’ efforts are cookery teacher Rosemary Shrager and Michelin-starred chef Giorgio Locatelli. The pair will set challenges in both the studio kitchen and home kitchens, whittling down 16 teams of cooks over eight heats, three semi-finals and one grand finale.
In each episode, two families (represented by three family members) will go head to head, tested by three rounds.
In the ‘£10 Challenge’, the teams must showcase their best effort to feed four with a budget of £10, within one hour and 15 minutes. In the ‘Home Visits Challenge’, the teams must cook a main course and a dessert within 90 minutes. In the ‘Impress The Neighbours Challenge’, the teams must create a starter and a main course within two hours and 15 minutes.
