The Great Food Race

In this brand new competition, there are no restaurants and no dreams of becoming a professional chef. Our contestants are inspired by great home cooking, they love entertaining and providing their guests with an experience to remember. They also believe that they can provide these things anywhere in New Zealand – or the world.

Eight teams of two from around the country, consisting of partners, lifelong friends and in-laws will showcase their skills to prove their worth in The Great Food Race.


The Great Food Race airs 7pm Sundays!
