You know what they say: the family that cooks together… could end up on a major national TV show together? The Food Network is casting for a new “Family Food” competition. Okay, okay, so this isn’t a competition for every family. If your culinary skill level falls somewhere between boxed mac and cheese and a bowl of oatmeal, you might want to hold off. So what are the casting directors looking for?

You know how some cooking competition shows pit novice or not-so-professional cooks against one another. These non-chefs are kind of culinary whizzes in their own right, but they also aren’t working in Michelin star restaurants. Well, this show is looking for someone in-between (that is, families of three or more).

To qualify for this new, as-yet-unnamed show, everyone in your family (meaning everyone who is auditioning) needs to be a chef. Yes, a real chef—or professional cook. Sorry, no five-year-old spaghetti-makers or nine-year-old pancake flippers for this one.

The show will film this July; if selected, you’ll need to be available from Jul. 15 through 19. If you meet the requirements, head on over to and fill out the online survey. You can also keep up on the casting notices for this, and other, gameshows by following Gameshow Casting on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook!
