For those unfamiliar with Halloween Wars, five teams consisting of a pastry chef, sugar/candy specialist, and a professional pumpkin carver, will battle it out each week by combining their skills to create deliciously scary dioramas based on a different horror theme. Then, each week a panel of judges will eliminate a team until only one team is left standing to take home the grand prize of $50,000.
The themes of each battle range from scary stories, to horror movie classics, to something completely out of this world. The team then is required to combine their respective talents to create a scene that embodies the theme, showcases their skills, and has an edible element to it.
While it’s not your usual scary Halloween show, it’s great for anyone who likes Halloween, art, pumpkin carving, baking, and if you’re like me, is a foodie.
Joining Halloween Wars this season on Food Network will be the Halloween Baking Championship (airing Monday Nights in October), making Food Network a fun Halloween alternative to horror movies and scary shows, plus it’s fun for the whole family.
Halloween Wars airs Sunday nights in October on the Food Network. Check your local listings for times.
