Gingerbread Cathedral at Sheraton Hotel New Orleans One of New Orleans’ most iconic landmarks, the St. Louis Cathedral, constructed entirely of gingerbread is welcoming guests as they enter the lobby of the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel this year. Executive Chef Mark Quitney and his pastry team’s St. Louis Cathedral Gingerbread Scene enhances the hotel’s already festive decor which includes their time-honored display of Cajun Kris Kringle and his pirogue full of toys pulled by his trusty alligators, Bourée, Boudin and Roux-Dolph.

“This is the premiere piece of a wonderful new holiday tradition,” commented Chef Quitney. “Each year we plan to expand our French Quarter scene which will eventually include gingerbread renditions of the Presbytere and Cabildo as well.”

Geared up for the holidays, the hotel is also offering guests a new Holiday Traditions Treasure Hunt package which leads guests on a quest to discover treasured New Orleans’ holiday traditions.
