"Now in its second year, Operation Home Cooking has offered 2,500 military spouses the opportunity to attend the Cooking & Entertaining Show and participate in celebrity chef demonstrations in recognition of their commitment and sacrifices for our nation," said the White House.

Biden is a blue star mother; she and Vice President Joe Biden are parents to Beau Biden, a Captain in the Delaware Army National Guard, and a veteran of the Iraq war. The cooking show is at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.
