Food Network Canada has ordered Family Cook Off, a 12 x 30-minute competition series to air from March 1 at 9 p.m. EST.

Produced by Force Four Entertainment in association with Food Network Canada, the series is Canada’s version of the Australian series Coles Great Aussie Cook Off, which has already been remade in Singapore and the UK.

Hosted by Entertainment Tonight Canada‘s Kim D’Eon and shot in Vancouver, each episode sees two Canadian families going head-to-head in a bid to win “the coveted Golden Frying Pan” and CDN$1,000 (US$1,000) worth of groceries.

Food Network Canada chefs and cookbook authors Anthony Sedlak (The Main) and Trish Magwood (Party Dish) appear on the show as judges. They evaluate each family’s creations, awarding points for taste, presentation and style.
