Channel 5 has announced a new series which will search for the country's best family of home cooks.

Real Food Family Cook Off will be hosted by former Celebrity Masterchef winners Lisa Faulkner and Matt Dawson. Funded by Tesco, the show will also be broadcast on the Good Food channel.

Each episode will see two teams made up of three family members go head to head. Taking part in two cook-offs in each episode, the teams will have just 30 minutes to prepare and plate up their chosen recipes.

The families will face critique from series judge Ainsley Harriot, as well as a varying weekly celebrity guest.

The seven-episode series will comprise four heats, two semi-finals and a grand final. The cook-offs are being filmed at family favourite locations around the UK including London Zoo, Portsmouth, Greenwich Park and Kensington Gardens.

"The Real Food Family Cook Off is all about bringing families together through cooking," said Channel 5 commissioning editor for entertainment, daytime and soaps Greg Barnett.

"It's a great format and as well as providing fantastic entertainment through the fabulous talent and teams we've attached to the series, there are inspirational and accessible recipes everyone can try at home."

Tesco's head of real food Breige Donaghy added: "This is an exciting opportunity for Tesco to work with a new and unique style of cooking show. The Real Food Family Cook Off supports Tesco's Real Food campaign to inspire and encourage customers to enjoy creating new dishes and share recipes."
