World's Largest Gingerbread Village

The holidays bring out many different types of spirit: the spirit of giving, the spirit of love, the spirits of whiskey and, most recently, the competitive spirit. Chef Jon Lovitch worked for a whole year (all while wearing a Santa hat I’m sure) to construct what is now officially “the world’s largest edible gingerbread village.” When the trusty guys from the Guinness Book of World Records stopped by, the 300-square foot village weighed in at a whopping 1.5 tons!
