GOLDEN FAMILY DINNER
Five teams of 2 will compete against each other in this daily studio reality cooking show to flaunt their personalities and impeccable cooking skills.
The teams should consist of two people who already know each other and have an established relationship. Mothers and daughters, newlyweds, siblings, couples, brides and mother-in-laws...etc. are all viable teams for the program.
Each day, one pair will create a menu of their choosing and one person in the duo will cook the identified three course menu in the given time, using one of the various kitchen setups located in the studio.
The other person in the duo – could be mother, father, sibling, mother-in law, father-in-law, brother or sister in law, friend... etc. - will guide that person on how to cook the meal and help her set up the table for other contestants who will be tasting their menu and scoring them after their presentation.
PHASE 1: COOKING & PREPARATIONS
The duo will have to come up with the menu, cook everything, set up the table and finish other preparations before the final presentation in a designated time. A lively, expert host will accompany the duo with her witty commentary in the kitchen located in our studio as the team rushes to get everything done.
Once all the cooking is done, the duo will have to put in the effort to create a mesmerizing table setting for the presentation in which the contestants will sit down and enjoy the meal in a different studio designed to look like a cozy living room space.
PHASE 2: PRESENTATION & ENTERTAINMENT
Once the dinner is served, the duo is responsible for providing some kind of entertainment. They could bring a band, dancers... any sort of performance that they think will get them more points from the other contestants.
After each presentation, the remaining contestants will give out a score out of 10 in two different categories: Technical and Artistic. Technical category covers the overall execution of the menu and the taste of the meals whereas the Artistic category covers the duo’s preparedness, presentation and the entertainment.
The total points for each team will be announced on Fridays and the winners of the week will win prize money. Moreover, our hosts and the contestants will also pick out a Golden Family Member amongst themselves at the end of the week. The winning team of the week and the Golden Family Member, will get to compete in the show for another week and continue their journey for a chance to show-off their skills in the season finale.
There are two hosts for the show. Both are very upbeat and colorful personalities. One will accompany the duos in the kitchen and the other will provide the audience with background information about the contestants, chat with their relatives, friends and the audience members and talk to the other teams throughout the process.
People from all walks of life will get to showcase their colorful personalities, cook different exotic and/or traditional foods and strengthen their familial ties. We will witness sweet moments as well as lots of bickering and fun familial banter between the duos as they disagree on certain things and defend themselves against the other contestants.
In the end, which of these five teams will win the ultimate seats at the Golden Family Dinner?
