The Metropolitan Cooking & Entertaining Show honored Military Spouses to spend a day of Food bliss with Food Network stars.


On November 13th The 2010 Metropolitan Cooking & Entertaining Show (MCES) honored Military spouses including the Wounded Warriors and Veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan spouses through their specially supported and funded  “Operation Home Cooking”.


 “Operation Home Cooking” created an initiative to honor and recognize a group of military spouses as part of the 2010 show. “Operation Home Cooking” hosted Military spouses and their families to enjoy a day of gratitude and VIP treatment. Military spouses and their families were able to take part and enjoy more than 300 exhibitors, attend presentations by The Food Network stars Paula Deen and Bobby Flay, autographed cookbook by Deen, Flay or Rachel Ray and were guests at a private event. The event was hosted by Mrs. Lloyd Austin, the spouse of the Commanding General of US Forces in Iraq, and Mrs. Kenneth O. Preston, wife of the Sergeant Major of the United States Army.  Paula Deen, B. Smith, and Dr. Jill Biden made special guest appearances to express their gratitude for all of the spouses’ sacrifice and strength.


“Since the Metropolitan Cooking & Entertaining Show occurs during Veterans Day week, there could not be more a appropriate time to recognize and pay tribute to the spouses of our military heroes for their daily sacrifice and commitment.” said Denise Medved, MCES Founder.


"If you or someone you care about is the spouse of a soldier, sailor, marine or airmen who is currently serving or has recently served in Afghanistan and/or Iraq, please nominate them to participate in this exciting event today!" Medved added.
