"Operation Home Cooking", an initiative held during the Metropolitan Cooking & Entertaining Show recognizes military spouses for the commitment and sacrifices they make by taking care of their families and supporting their veteran Soldier, Sailor, Marine and Airmen. Last year the project brought 350 spouses to the show for a private luncheon. This year because of corporate sponsorships the initiative was able to arrange for 2,500 to attend. “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 Food Network stars including Paula Deen and Giada De Laurentiis.
