Now that Halloween is over, we move full speed ahead into the Christmas holiday season which brings with it many opportunities for family fun, one of which is a free workshop on how to build a gingerbread house.  

Have you ever made one?  I used to make gingerbread houses with my kids every year but those were store bought kits.  If you want to do it the old-fashioned way and learn the whole process, Destination Oneonta is offering a workshop this Saturday (Nov. 10) from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Southside Mall, Oneonta.  This is a first come, first served workshop with enough for 40 houses to be constructed.  Participants are asked to please bring a bag of candy or other food decorating material to share with the group.  The Southside Mall is providing all other needed supplies for the workshop.

If you are considering entering the Destination Oneonta "A Day of Holiday Fun Gingerbread Contest" this year, this is a great way to learn tips and decorating ideas from skilled SUNY Delhi culinary students for your creation.  The theme for the competition this year is "Holiday FUN".
