Check out the Metropolitan Cooking & Entertaining Show this weekend at the Washington Convention Center. Over 150 companies will be displaying and selling their products while some of Washington’s top chefs will be doing demonstrations. Headlining the show is Paula Deen, who is known for her “down-home” personality and traditional Southern cooking. She has written several cookbooks, has a magazine, and two TV shows!
A few of our favorite local chefs include Nathan Beauchamp, executive chef at 1789; Cathal Armstrong, chef and owner of Restaurant Eve, Eamonn’s, and The Majestic; and Susan Wallace, pastry chef at Blacksalt.
General admission is $20 for adults, $10 for kids. Tickets including admission to Paula Deen’s presentation are $55 each.
