Well it’s that time again….our chefs are  busy  baking up ginger and spice and everything nice! Restocking with freshest of  ingredients which includes  ground cloves, cardamom, cinnamon, decadence dark rich cocoa. Only the finest will do in order to mix up the magic of the holidays. Whimsical faces adore the Gingerbread  making the traditions of Christmas light up the smiles on our  most littlest customer. Exactly when this fun sweet bundle of a cookie first came to life is not certain but much is credited to the “Grimm Brothers” and the tale of “Hansel & Gretel“. Or who doesn’t like to imagine baking a gingerbread boy only naughty enough too run away ; we all know what happens to him at the end. So whether you are making up a batch of gingerbread dough  out of your own family recipe, ordering some of ours or maybe making a traditional gingerbread house may you be surrounded by the spirit of old Saint Nicholas

himself …..

You might say Chef, What does pastry have to do with two brothers name “Grimm” ? Think for a moment back in time when your imagination first begin to stir , perhaps it was when your parents or Grandparents read you a bedtime story! For me it was late at night when laying in bed with my sister twenty years my senior , her voice so beckon  me to follow the story. Her hair was long and flowing as if she too was one of the princesses  in the story. Her life nor free from drama of its own. Her voice inmated the charterers so well from the wicked witch to the  children lost and hungry.

Some where between mid way and the end I asked, ” Would you like to live in a Ginger-bread house?” “And could you would you make one with me?” A thousand questions came to mind… “Where in the world would you buy such candy to adorn it with?”I could not rest till the following day I convinced her to help me make one.

It was not the masterpiece we both thought it would be. But that day my my sister baked up a memory I will never forget!!
