November 25, 2015- January 2, 2016
On November 25 at 11 a.m., Executive Pastry Chef Jean-Francois Houdré and his team will unveil the new  “St. Francis Enchanted Castle” in the Landmark Lobby. Created by Executive Pastry Chef Jean-François Houdré and his team, this one-of-a-kind rotating 12-feet-tall winter wonderland features brilliantly colored ornaments, elaborate gift boxes, candies and Christmas trees. Elves can be spotted climbing all the way up to a towering all-white sugar castle. Each item is intricately handcrafted using the practiced techniques of sugar art including pulling, blowing, shaping and molding, each taking years to perfect.  Chef Houdré learned the refined art of pastry by working in his family’s bakery where everything was created from scratch. Born in the Southwest region of France into the family business of boulanger-pâtissier, he was inspired to become a pâtissier by his father who taught him not only the technique but also a true love for the craft.  This exciting event is open to the public and will feature music and complimentary coffee and cookies. The St. Francis Enchanted Castle will be on display November 25 - January 2.
