If there is one thing I have learned about Houston, it is that we love our food (look at the number and variety of restaurants) and we love to entertain. After all, I think that even Hurricane Ike turned into a cause for entertainment as neighbors and families joined together not only thier resources, but also there foods. Neighbors would strike up the grill to cook in areas without power. These are just a few of the reasons that The Metropolitan Cooking and Entertaining Show has decided to come to Houston.
What is The Metropolitan Cooking and Entertaining Show?
Quite simply it is the “Super Bowl” of cooking and entertaining. Founded by Denise Medved it is designed to create an all day experience for foodies. Much like the NFL caters to football fans, The Metropolitan Cooking & Entertaining Show caters to those who are passionate about cooking and entertianing.
