Hear it from The Chef

What inspired you to make the Capitol out of gingerbread?

At first it was a simple question that went like this “can the Chef create a Capitol gingerbread house?”

And then it became this famous replica of the Capitol 4 years in the making. As I learned, that this had never been done before inside the Capitol.

I was driven to not only make it amazing every year but also share it with everyone.

How long does it take to create?

Well, I will say, that my first year (2016) of ever creating anything of this magnitude? I started in September. Now I start 3 weeks out from the reveal on November 30th.

What is the most difficult part of the Capitol to make?

Well this one is easy!!!
I remember in 2016 stressing out about how I was going to create the dome out of gingerbread. It turns out that a 5 quart kitchen aide mixing bowl stuffed with rice Krispy treat makes the perfect mold.
