The series will follow two families battling it out for culinary supremacy and a $10,000 prize. They will put their family recipes to the test, while sharing their stories.
The format will include three courses, where the families share their recipes on classic favorites. While they are preparing, viewers learn about their lives, their culture and their sweet and savory creations along the way. Then Fox invites her special guest judges to taste the results and award the grand prize of $10,000 to one lucky family per episode.
Rainbow Heads, which was founded by former Discovery exec Jodi Tovay and 1000lb Sisters exec producer Daniel Keller-Bradshaw, is currently taking the project out to networks and streamers.
“This isn’t your typical food competition show,” said Fox. “Recipes passed down by generations sometimes tell the story of a family’s rich traditions, that nourish not only the appetite but the soul.” “We hope to show that meals made with love, and a little bit of friendly competition, can be satisfying to everyone who watches.”
“We are thrilled to be working with Ms. Fox and veteran executive producer, Woody Woodbeck, on this project.” added Tovay and Keller-Bradshaw. “The goal is to showcase that culture and tradition shine through with each family’s passion for cooking; serving the viewer with a truly unique culinary competition experience.”
