The two judges set challenges in both the studio kitchen and home kitchens, whittling down the 16 teams of cooks over eight heats, three semi-finals and one grand final.
In the first of the semi-finals, three families go head to head. Only one can go through to the final.
It's the second semi-final and three families face three demanding, new challenges: What's In The Fridge? Perfect Puddings and Nation's Favourite With A Twist. Returning to the studio kitchen this week are the Kings, the Gangotras and the Buoys, all hoping to impress judges Rosemary and Giorgio enough for a place in the Cooking Showdown final.
It's the last of the semi-finals. Three more families return to the studio kitchen where they go head to head with each other - but with a surprise twist. The Piggotts and the Bellamores are joined by a wildcard family, chosen by Giorgio and Rosemary from the runner-ups. They've been given another chance to get to the final.
The families face three demanding, new challenges: Perfect Puddings, Nation's Favourite With A Twist and What's In The Fridge? While tonight's episode is packed with eye-wateringly tasty dishes by talented home cooks - meatballs, moussaka, lemon meringue pie and chocolate fondant - the one thing that almost breaks the families is poached egg.
Which team will have what it takes to earn a place in next week's final showdown?
It's the Big Family Cooking Showdown final, and it's down to judges Rosemary Shrager and Giorgio Locatelli to decide which team will be crowned the nation's best family of home cooks. Over the last 11 weeks, 16 multi-generational family teams of passionate home cooks have been battling it out and now only three remain.
This week they face one long, continuous challenge: preparing food for a big family get-together, including a range of nibbles, main courses and desserts.
In the nibbles round, one family struggle with the definition of bite size and are taken to task over their ‘man portions' while the other family take on the dish that Italian chef Giorgio has become known for: his favourite food in the world - arancini balls.
There can only be one winner. Let the showdown commence!
