One of the pinnacles of a chef’s career is to be recognized by the James Beard Foundation. On Saturday, Nov. 8 and Sunday, Nov. 9, a dozen Beard winners and nominees, and guest chefs of The James Beard House will demonstrate their talents at MetroCooking DC at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.
In addition to featured cooking demos, there will be a series of tasting and entertaining workshops ranging from “How to Make the Perfect Burger at Home” to “Understanding Spices.” The show’s marketplace will feature more than 300 vendors selling specialty food products and savvy kitchenware. New this year is a Natural Foods Pavilion that will feature organic and natural products. These events are included as part of the $20-per-day general admission.
Attendees have the option to purchase tickets to presentations with celebrity chefs Guy Fieri and Bobby Flay, advanced cooking classes, and admission to the Grand Tasting Pavilion and the Beer, Wine & Spirits Pavilion. A complete schedule of events and online ticketing information is available at metrocookingdc.com.
