Kick Off Cook Off premiered on TLC on October 7, 2010. This series slams together America's two favorite pastimes - football and cooking. In each episode, two teams of football-loving foodies will compete against each other with their tried-and-true tailgate-style recipes in an effort to win bragging rights and a cash prize. What they don't know is that they are also competing against their favorite football players, who are in it to prove that they are as talented in the kitchen as they are on the field. The teams compete in two halves - an appetizer and a main course - and then points are tallied and winner takes all.
