Albany - There's a new chef in town, and he's cooking up something special for the holidays. Thomas Wild is Phoebe Putney's new executive chef, and he's already busy on a giant Gingerbread house.

It takes about 40 hours to put the 350 pound house together, but Wild says it's worth it to please patients. "I think most of the Chefs that work in hospitals from Key West, Florida to Anchorage, Alaska you can see that we have really tried to improve the food within the hospital and tried different flavors and ingredients to try and make it better for the patient."

Wild has cooked for Presidents Carter, Reagan and Ford. If you want to see his giant gingerbread creation, you can check it out Monday morning in the main lobby at Phoebe Putney Hospital--and yes, you can eat it!
