According to the Washington Post, the dethroned queen of Southern cooking was scheduled to appear at the November event but due to a scheduling conflict she will instead join MetroCooking for an event in March.
The Post reports that MetroCooking offered fans who already bought tickets to Deen’s planned Nov. 2 presentation to attend the event in March for no extra charge or to receive a refund.
She was to present on the Celebrity Theater stage. The website still included a photo of Deen Friday afternoon but she was not listed on the schedule.
