Food Network Massachusetts Contestants Compete For Halloween
This week, Food Network Massachusetts contestants compete.
With the fall season upon us, it can be a little depressing to look forward to later sunsets, cooler weather, and higher heating bills. But the Fall and Winter months are not all doom and gloom.
With the Fall and Winter comes the season of baked goods. For every degree down in temperature we get a new style of holiday cupcake, cookie and cake. Every holiday party comes with a new treat to sample. Before we dive into our sugar high, did you know that the Food Network has local roots?
It was actually launched in April of 1993, under it’s original name, TV Food Network. A women named Erica Gruen was hired as CEO. She changed the branding from: TV for everyone who likes to cook, to TV for everyone who likes to EAT. Reportedly, that single change made the network more appealing to a larger audience, and part of the massive success it enjoys today.
Food Network Welcomes Massachusetts
Did you know there’s actually a show on the Food Network called The Halloween Cookie Challenge?
It’s successful enough to get a second season that debuted this week. It’s a show where bakers compete to whip up the wildest, scariest Halloween baked ghoulish goodies.
Contestants From Auburn and Billerica
Mass Live reported that Massachusetts residents Loren Stanard, of Auburn, and Nolan Schooley, of Billerica, are scheduled to compete October 2 at 10 p.m. According to Mass Live, the first baker, Aisling O’Sullivan of Auburn, will be competing on the premiere episode of Halloween Cookie Challenge.
Wow, and we thought Auburn was just known for rockets!
Good luck to our Massachusetts contestants on the Food Network!
