Family kitchen revival

Featuring Celebrity Chef Jonathan Scinto

Casting Call

Family Kitchen Revival is now casting for their first season. We are looking for families that have faced a recent hardship and were helped by their family, friends or community, who want to give back for the kindness they received.

Celebrity Chef Johnathan Scinto will work with your family to realize its potential for creating culinary masterpieces. You will work side by side with Chef Jonathan Scinto to create a meal to say ‘thank you’ to those that helped you through tough times.

Shooting will take place in the family’s home and will culminate with the presentation of a family-style meal to those who assisted you during your time of struggle. Each episode will feature one family.

Jonathan Scinto is a private chef and television personality known for his exquisite work on Fox’s Master Chef and Food Network’s Chopped. He utilizes rustic Italian flavors and Asian influences to create Itasian, a fusion of Italian and Asian cuisines. A native of Long Island, Jonathan’s new series will give back to the community and help bring neighbors together.
