Two-story gingerbread house debuts at Fairmont Hotel Saturday

Thousands of pounds of gingerbread, 1,200 pounds of icing and 650 pounds of candy will make up this year’s gingerbread house at the Fairmont Hotel, making it the largest of its kind in California.

Executive Chef Oscar Gonzalez and Executive Chef Kimberly Tighe are heading up the work on this year’s gingerbread house, which is two stories and measures 22 feet high by 23 feet wide.

The gingerbread house will be formally unveiled on Saturday, Nov 26 from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. A donation box will be set up next to the sugary creation, collective funds for Do It For The Love Foundation, a charity founded by Michael Franti that brings terminally ill, wounded or disabled people to live concerts.
