Competition – just desserts.  Top chefs from area restaurants, bakeries and culinary schools will put their dessert skills to the test as they compete in the 20th Annual Gingerbread House Competition to benefit Housing Families, Inc. – a non-profit organization dedicated to ending family homelessness in Massachusetts.  This battle of gingerbread and icing will go down on Friday, November 8nd from 10am to 12noon.  The sweet and tasty creations will be judged by a celebrity panel including Caught in Southie’s own Maureen Dahill and her two sons Peter Gailunas (10years old) and Henry Gailunas (9years old).
