On November 17, 2013, Chef Jon Lovitch was awarded the official Guinness World Record for Largest Gingerbread Village. While my friends in Bergen, Norway may feel robbed by the standards for qualification, there's no doubt that Jon put a lot of hard work into creating this masterpiece that has been on display at the New York Hall of Science, and is to be given away piece by piece this Saturday. Here are just a few of the incredible handmade items from this display:
Gingerbread Lane Fire Department, Van Dyke & Poole Mercantile, Chef Steve's Famous Cobblers
Cecil's Pies, Jon's Egg Nog Distillery, Snow Man Apple Cider Co.
Cinnamon & Nutmeg Railroad with Clock Tower
Sailboat & Lighthouse
How to Make A Gingerbread House Instructions
Gum Drop Row
There's even a Gingerbread Subway Station!!
Some lucky children will get to take home pieces from the display on Saturday!
