Just in time for the holidays, The Fairmont Washington, D.C., Georgetown’s Pastry Chef, Rebecca Clerget, is teaching an adult and a children’s Gingerbread Class. In the past, she has helped to construct the Gingerbread House at the White House on Pennsylvania Avenue. This year, she was asked to create a replica of Southern Living Magazine’s Idea House from Blue Prints. This will be featured in their December issue and on display in the hotel’s lobby along with a gingerbread replica of an old time toy shoppe.
