About Jon

Jon Lovitch is a chef and the creator of Gingerbread Lane, an annual display of homemade and handmade gingerbread houses that he drafts, designs, bakes, plans, builds, and decorates for an entire year.

Originally hailing from Kansas City, Missouri, Jon was inspired by a local pastry chef by the name of Chuck Conroy and a mutual chef friend by the name of Joe Evano to create this elaborate holiday treat that has grown from just 12 houses in 1994 to 138 this year, all made from 100% edible materials. No fake snow or cardboard stands even!

A former executive chef turned self-taught gingerbread baker, Jon has the chops to bring his baked brand of joy to the public-at-large. He graduated with a degree from the Culinary Institute of America in New York, has over 25 years of experience in the restaurant business under his belt, and has been the Executive Chef in prestigious spots such as the Plaza and the Algonquin in NYC, and even worked across the street from the White House at the Hay Adams. He gave all of that up in 2015 to pursue his dream of making GingerBread Lane, his once-hobby, full-time labor of love, and dream come true.
