Watch The Mill’s gingerbread masterpiece in the making!

In the run-up to Christmas regular visitors to The Mill witnessed a mouth-watering confectionery creation unfolding before their eyes – as our patisserie chef worked his magic on a gorgeous gingerbread house.

You can see the creation and build, led by chef Tony Culliney, in our time-lapse video here, shown from its humble biscuit beginnings right up to the finished festive masterpiece.

We decided the gingerbread house was the perfect gift to hand over to Derian House Children’s Hospice in the run-up to Christmas, and visited the Chorley charity to deliver our special treat.

Nicola Hanmer, commercial catering manager at St Catherine’s Hospice and The Mill, said: “Tony did a fantastic job on our gingerbread house which is beautifully decorated and certainly looked good enough to eat!

“We thought the children and young people at Derian House would enjoy tucking in during the run up to Christmas and it was great to see their reactions when we handed it over.”
