What to Watch: Get in the Halloween Spirit This Weekend with Triple G, Halloween Wars and Cutthroat Kitchen

By: Caitlyn Callegari

October is bursting onto the scene, which means familiar fall festivities aren't far behind, including Halloween and cold-weather comforts. Food Network has been creatively cooking up programming to match, with one part tricky competition and one part tempting treats. Celebrate the start of the new month appropriately with a thrilling Halloween-episode run of Guy's Grocery Games, Halloween Wars and Cutthroat Kitchen. You're in for a night of suspense, as not every chef will make it out of the competitions alive.

It's not all ghoulish programming, though. You can catch Trisha's Southern Kitchen, The Kitchen and Farmhouse Rules for a more reserved round of weekend entertainment. Trisha's throwing a tea party, The Kitchen is serving up yummy comfort-food delights and Farmhouse Rules is going au naturel, using homegrown ingredients.

Join Trisha and her friend Glenda for a tea party. In keeping with the theme, Trisha makes a meal of miniature dishes, including: Creamy Asparagus Soup, Mini Egg Salad Sandwiches, Mini Stuffed Peppers and Mini Monkey Bread Muffins.

Saturday 10:30a|9c

The Kitchen chefs are putting their own mature spin on favorite dishes, ranging from Sunny’s Apple Butter-Braised Pork Chops and Jeff’s red wine-braised short ribs to Geoffrey's baked BLT Macaroni and Cheese and Katie's stovetop version with mushrooms and thyme, to authentic Italian cannoli.

Saturday 11a|10c

Nancy dishes out Pasta Primavera with Fresh Linguini, Herb-Buttered Corn on the Cob, Zesty Garden Vegetable Bread Salad and S'mores Chocolate Chip Cookies to local school kids and her daughter Lorinda, a school principal.

In this Halloween edition of Triple G, Guy shocks the contestants with a daunting Red Light Special. In the next game, Guy tricks them into making a savory treat with sweets in Single Aisle Showdown. In the final game, Guy hands the chefs his Grocery List filled with spooky items like bone marrow, blood orange and black garlic and tells them to make their best dish.

Five teams, including an expert pumpkin carver, cake decorator and sugar artist, make Halloween-themed displays for a haunted farm. At the end of the battle, one team will be eliminated. Special guest judge: Naomi Grossman, who appeared in American Horror Story: Asylum.

Sunday 9|8c

Cutthroat is even more gut-wrenching than usual for the chefs with this Halloween episode. One chef makes a deal with the devil, another has to dig themselves out of their own grave and another has to cook over a hell flame.
