There's something timeless and comforting about family traditions, especially around holidays. And for chefs in particular, the passing down of cherished recipes holds a special place. The familiar smells from the oven or taste tests from something bubbling on the stovetop bring warm memories of shared meals and fun times together. And now for a little walk down candy cane lane with our very own, Chef Cam Dobranski. This holiday season, Chef Cam revived one of his childhood traditions - gingerbread making, baking, constructing ... and eating, of course.
The recipe hadn't been made by the family in years, but Chef Cam brought it back with a bang this year, making 250 gingerbread cookies on behalf of Medium Rare to donate to the Morning of Giving Cookie Sale in support of The Magic of Christmas. Plus, the Medium Rare team and their families decided to get into the spirit and have a little holiday fun making gingerbread houses. We realize we're biased, but this is one of the best gingerbread recipes we've ever tasted and we wanted to share it with all of you!
