This has been a big couple weeks for Vancouver and cooking shows.  First, Top Chef shot its season finale at several restaurants around the city, including Bao Bei, Black+Blue and Coast (airing Feb. 29 at 10 p.m. on Bravo USA).   Now, a brand new competitive cooking show set in Vancouver is about to kick off.

Family Cook Off premieres on Thursday, March 1, at 9 p.m. on Food Network Canada.  The show, which has been described as a kind of Iron Chef for non-professional cooks by the Vancouver Sun, pits two families against one another as they race against the clock to cook the best meal.

And Vancouverites will instantly recognize the show’s backdrop.  Family Cook Off was filmed outside on the dock at Stamp’s Landing, on the edge of False Creek.  As families furiously cook away, you can make out sailboats floating by in False Creek and the glitzy new highrises of Yaletown on the opposite shore.  Plus, the show was shot last August during a stretch of gorgeous days – Talk about some great advertising for the city.

So how does Family Cook Off work?
