Coming Right Up: Gingerbread House Workshop

Boston food editor Donna Garlough heads to Smolak Farms this Saturday to host the first-ever “Culinary Housing: Gingerbread House Workshop.” Smolak Farms will provide all of the fixings (flavored icing, chocolate snowmen, candy canes, gum drops, etc.), plus fresh-from-the-oven gingerbread, while Garlough will bring the expertise so that you and the kids can build a sugary masterpiece.

$40 per pair. Registration is necessary and a portion of proceeds benefit Toys for Tots.

Saturday, December 18, 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. 315 South Bradford St., North Andover. 978-682-6332,
