Students in Mrs. Craven's Chefs 1 class at LVHS made gingerbread houses before winter break.

Before the holiday break, Locust Valley High School students in Ms. Craven’s Chefs 1 class baked gingerbread houses from scratch. The young chefs baked the dough and created ornate structures and winter scenes outside the houses with a mix of cereals, candies, and snacks. Houses were judged based on a series of criteria, including the construction of the house, design of the roof and overall house, added details, tree design and overall neatness.

After being graded, each house was given to a member of the school staff of the students’ choosing.
