Plot Synopsis

Hosted by Zoe Ball and Nadiya Hussain, THE BIG FAMILY COOKING SHOWDOWN is a one-hour, multigenerational home-cooking competition series that puts 16 families to the test in a series of challenges judged by food experts Giorgio Locatelli and Rosemary Shrager. In the first eight episodes, two families face off in each program with each winner (and one wild card) advancing to the semifinals. Then, each of the three semifinal episodes feature three returning families, who compete for one of the coveted spots in the finals. In the finale, with everything on the line, the top three families face the final challenge: preparing a multicourse feast for eight in under five hours. THE BIG FAMILY COOKING SHOWDOWN had its U.S. premiere on Friday, November 3, 2017 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, as Netflix released the entire 12-episode first season.
