It all began in December when Mishpacha magazine picked 10 talented contributors to submit a recipe featuring a surprise ingredient. The recipes were published on and printed in Mishpacha’s Family Table. Readers voted for their favorites. Like the Food Network’s series Chopped, one contestant was eliminated and the remaining nine went on to battle it out in a series of new culinary challenges.

By May, four finalists were still standing. The moment the mystery ingredient is revealed, finalists have five minutes to plan their dish, ransack the pantry and grab the equipment they need. Thirty minutes go by lightning-fast in the Food Fight kitchen, and every second counts while the clock is ticking!

Who will survive the pressure cooker? The contestant who wows the judges the most will take home a $5,000 gift certificate to Town Appliance to outfit the kitchen of their dreams. But really, everyone wins because all the recipes will be available on

Watch a thrilling new episode each Wednesday — July 25, August 1, and August 8 — and read a riveting behind-the-scenes perspective each week by Mishpacha magazine. Hosted by food blogger/vlogger Danielle Renov, Food Fight is sponsored by
