Austin, Texas (PRWEB) November 27, 2013
The Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts located at 6020-B Dillard Circle in Austin, Texas, is excited to announce that it has been selected to create a gingerbread replica of Austin’s famous Driskill Hotel that will be unveiled on Wednesday, December 4 from 6-8 p.m. during the Driskill’s annual tree lighting ceremony.
More than 50 pounds of gingerbread dough along with candy and frosting galore will be baked and assembled by a team of 11 to create the gingerbread replica of the Driskill Hotel. Photos of the progression of the hotel can be found on the school’s facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/escoffierschool.
At the same time the gingerbread hotel is being created, students will be busy completing part of their baking and pastry curriculum by creating an entire gingerbread village. The traditional European-style village, complete with snow, trees and seven building structures will be finalized December 5 and delivered the following day to the Austin Ronald McDonald House for display.
Both gingerbread projects will remain on display throughout the holiday season.
“Creating these culinary pieces of art is not only an honor, but a high point in our baking and pastry instructors’ and students’ careers,” said Paul Ryan, President of the Auguste Escoffier Schools of Culinary Arts.
