Food Network Hoping To Scare Up Good Time With Cutthroat Kitchen: Tournament Of Terror

If Food Network has proven anything over the last few years, it’s that it knows how to take advantage of holidays. To get your in the mood for Halloween, there’s a special Cutthroat Kitchen headed your way. The show is plenty of fun on its own, though some of the specials have gone a little silly with the things people end up having to do, but you can’t go too far when it’s Halloween.

It’s a five-episode tournament that kicks off on September 28th, and ends with a finale episode where the four winners battle it out.

Host Alton Brown won’t be holding anything back, and it isn’t just foods with appropriately “scary” names (blood oranges, Devil’s Food cake) that come into play here. The challenges are also Halloween-themed, like cooking while in outlandish costumes, and using creepy knives.
