PBS is cast for an uplifting cooking competition that celebrates the multiculturalism that makes American food unique and iconic. We are looking for brilliant cooks across the US to share their signature recipes with the nation. The series will showcase regional favorites; family recipes passed down through generations; and internationally-influenced recipes that are quickly becoming mainstays of American cuisine. We are seeking people not only with incredible recipes, but also with incredible stories. This is the opportunity for lesser-known chefs and talented home cooks to share their inspiring backstories and the beloved recipes that are most meaningful to them. They will be competing to have their dish crowned champion for the season!
See below for a list of must have characteristics for candidates:
- Candidate must be located in the US
- Skilled home cook or local chef
- Inspirational backstory
- A range of signature recipes with personal significance behind them
- Candidates should be as diverse as America itself with all ages, genders, ethnicities and backgrounds represented
