The All Chocolate Kitchen


I know that if you are like me you love chocolate! And like me you have seen chocolate  drinks, chocolate dessert or perhaps a chocolate bunny but have you ever seen a chocolate kitchen? A real life size chocolate kitchen?

This kitchen was built by Chef Alain Roby, former senior pastry chef for the Hyatt Hotels and a frequent contributor to Food Network. Using 1500 pounds of  chocolate donated by Callebaut, Chef Roby designed and constructed this replica of his own kitchen  to raise money and awareness for Saving Tiny Hearts, a charity for congenital heart defects.

Chef Roby and his family became involved with Saving Tiny Hearts after his own son, Jonathan, collapsed on a field in 2007 and was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect. After surgery to repair his heart he has recovered and has gone on to college.

The kitchen can be seen at 33 South Third Street in Geneva, IL. The All Chocolate Kitchen offers classes, ladies night out, birthday parties, and tastings. Why not go over and taste a delicious hot chocolate, a yummy confection or a pastry. I know I will be going on my next visit to Illinois.
