On Nov. 5 and 6, part of the Washington Convention Center was occupied, not by any protesters, but by the Metropolitan Cooking and Entertaining Show. The 25,000 guests at the happily overwhelming annual food party got a chance to see food stars Paula Deen, Guy Fieri and Giada De Laurentiis along with such local chefs as Michel Richard and Mike Isabella — and sample products from food companies: beef, sausage, pasta, gelato, chocolates, cookies, cheese, pizza, dipping and rubbing sauces, peanuts . . . you name it. Also, on hand were entertaining experts like CherylStyle with presentations.
