DAVIO’S PHILADELPHIA
On Sunday, December 9th from 12:00pm to 3:00pm and 5:00pm to 8:00pm, children of all ages are invited to Davio’s Philadelphia to participate in a one-of-a-kind gingerbread house workshop with some of Philadelphia’s most renowned pastry chefs, including chef Robert Bennett of Classic Cake, chef Stephanie Arbelo of Jones and executive pastry chef James Rodebaugh of Brulee Catering.
 
Davio’s pastry chef Olisha Sealy will lead the demonstration and workshop, teaching children how to build personalized gingerbread houses fit for the North Pole.

Each participating child will receive one gingerbread house to decorate, with delectable decorations included, a buffet lunch, and the chance to meet Santa himself.
