Nine’s new weekend lifestyle show The Great Aussie Cook Off will be hosted by Vince Sorrenti and Jo Silvagni.
To air in October, the 8 part series will air at 5pm Sundays -far less profile than TEN’s MasterChef. With a leading supermarket behind it, the show is one of a growing number of sponsor-driven entertainment series.
The competition sees families of 4 from around Australia compete against each other in a celebration of culinary cultural diversity.
“There is nothing nicer than having a good laugh with the family while enjoying a hearty meal prepared in the home kitchen,” said Sorrenti. “I can’t wait to see what our chosen families cook up during the series as each family member including the kiddies adds their special touch”.
Former Sale of the Century hostess Jo Silvagni said, “I’m thrilled to be involved in this great new series that will inspire Aussie families to enjoy the fun and pleasure of home cooking. I love the idea that the recipes designed by each competing family will be available for viewers at home who can try them out for themselves and vote for their favourite”.
Filming began yesterday on the new series.
Meanwhile Seven is casting for its own My Kitchen Rules series with teams of 2.
