Gingerbread Display

Each year Sheraton Grand Phoenix, formerly Sheraton Phoenix Downtown Hotel, holds a gingerbread house competition with students from Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts. The winner receives a school scholarship. However, until a winner is selected the entries are on display in the hotel's lobby throughout the holidays, along with a large display from our own pastry chef. This year's theme is Charlie Brown Christmas.
