'Tis the season for cookie swaps, family get-togethers and gatherings of all kinds, even among the celebrity set. In fact, with the holidays only weeks away, Andy Richter is opening up his house for a series of dinner parties with chefs, tastemakers and food fanatics from both the big screen and small. But of course when this comedian is in charge, guests will enjoy more than just dinner and drinks; there will surely be some laughs involved as well, and all of it will play out on the upcoming series  Celebrity Food Fight.

Premiering Wednesday, Dec. 9 at 10|9c, this three-part show will feature two teams of stars each week, and as the teams progress from appetizers to dinner and dessert, they'll be facing off in some friendly food-focused games. Think taste tests, cookbook trivia and kitchen gadget know-how — all while working in pairs to outscore the other team.

Between the rounds of game play, a guest chef will be prepping each component of the meal and even welcoming the stars into the kitchen for a few impromptu competitions. For these celebrities in the midst of a food fight, they'll have to bring their best culinary insights to dinner if they want to take home the coveted gold Food Fight plate.

Mark your calendar for the premiere of Celebrity Food Fight on Wednesday, Dec. 9 at 10|9c.
