Family cook-alongs, bake-offs, and fun kitchen challenges

Get the whole family in the kitchen and cook up some tasty treats while spending time at home.

1. Challenge your family to a MasterChef task

Turn up the heat in the kitchen and assemble a basket full of secret ingredients. Then, challenge a family member to make a meal using all the ingredients in the basket in under 30 minutes. Or if you’re feeling extra competitive, assemble two baskets and host a cook-off against each other at the same time.
