The world’s most edible city

How many people does it take to build a gingerbread house? Well if you’re building a village the answer is 13.

Now in its fourth year, EPICURE’s Executive Pastry Chef Deniz Karaca and his team of 12 spent over 2000 hours creating the Gingerbread Village. Comprising of iconic Melbourne landmarks, you’ll spot the Melbourne Town Hall, Melbourne Cricket Ground, Luna Park and the zoo – all connected by the Christmas train.

It's open to the public from 1-24 December, and while testing some of the world’s most edible city may be tempting, it is not encouraged. However, EPICURE’s pastry chefs have created some other delicious gingerbread treats that can be purchased on site, including gingerbread men, hearts and ice cream.

A gold coin donation is required for entry with all donations going to Make-A-Wish Australia. With almost $50,000 raised from the exhibition to date, it’s for a wonderful cause and in the spirit of Christmas.
