A foodie’s Disneyland (not to be confused with a Goofy's Disneyland, which is just Disneyland), this epic event unites the best culinary companies (caterers, party planners, personal chefs, specialty food vendors) for two majestic, mouth-watering days. Spend the day perusing the offerings from more than 150 exhibitors to pick up a year's worth of presents for your kitchen-obsessed uncle, or stock up on hostess presents for impromptu dinner parties. You'll also witness cooking demos from the region's top chefs in addition to your Celebrity Theater show, where you can sit a spell and watch culinary superstars in action. You can expect Bobby and Mario to cook up a storm, while Paula's show is mostly entertainment-oriented.

An effortless way to sample intimidating menu dishes without the commitment of ordering, this event for the epicurious puts the spice back into a dull dining routine. Walk around in a menu-free, food-dazed fog and nosh on whatever nibbles perk up your taste buds. After watching the top chefs sauté and slice, you might even be motivated to dust off the food processor and get cooking yourself. This Groupon makes a great gift for foodies, friends who can never agree on restaurant choices, and aspiring dinner-party hosts and hostesses.

Access to the beer, wine, and spirits pavilion; food and wine pairing; and just-for-kids cooking are not included.

Awesome experience, I loved it the most fun and amazing experience just wish some of the other sub events weren't so expensive. ie: book signings and cooking demonstrations

This was a great event. It filled the bottom on the DC Convention center with phenomenal vendors with great samples and things to buy. It was a lot of fun, the cooking demonstrations and good representatives of product from across the country.
