Eastern Panhandle Chef Makes it to Finals in Halloween Wars

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Steve Weiss can’t tell us yet if his team won the grand prize in the fifth and final episode of Halloween Wars.

Steve Weiss is the Associate Dean of Hospitality and Culinary Arts at Blue Ridge Community and Technical College

That’s for all of us to see for ourselves when the season finale airs Sunday.  Weiss, who is the Associate Dean of Hospitality and Culinary Arts at Blue Ridge Community and Technical College in Martinsburg, has been featured on Food Network competitions before, having been on Halloween Wars and Cake Wars.    

As for this season’s installment, Weiss says his team, called “Mummies Rejects,” clicked. He said, “You know, we really gelled as a team, and I think you really need that. Very few times can you put a team together — all these personalities – how do you work with that short period of time and become successful with it? We connected on a personal basis, as well as an artistic basis.”

Weiss is a master sugar artist who created a large spun sugar ghost for last week’s episode.

The payoff will be a $50,000 prize. Weiss says he’s encouraged by the community’s support.  

“The outpouring of love and well wishes from the community is amazing. And I really, really do appreciate it, and our team appreciates it,” Weiss said.

The season finale of Halloween Wars airs this Sunday at 9 p.m. on Food Network.
