All Chocolate Kitchen in Geneva, Illinois

We have found chocolate heaven at All Chocolate Kitchen! All Chocolate Kitchen located in Geneva, Illinois is the creation of renowned Pastry Chef Alain Roby. Chef Roby developed his culinary art in Paris and has won numerous accolades. He has been featured on numerous Food Network Shows, The Martha Stewart Show and The Learning Channel as well as many publications. Chef Roby even holds several Guinness Book of World Records titles including the longest candy cane.

Immediately when we walked in, we  had to check out this motorcycle! 
When I first learned about All Chocolate Kitchen, I had no concept of the breadth of sweet creations we would discover during our visit. When we first walked in, we took some time to amble about and soak in the temptations. Truffles, tarts, pies, rum balls, fudge, cheesecakes, croissants and so much more make decisions difficult!

There are also coffee concoctions, hot chocolate, teas, waffles, crepes, macarons, gelato and more. All Chocolate Kitchen truly invites a chocolate adventure!

In addition to the creations ready to eat, All Chocolate Kitchen is full of Chef Roby's chocolate sculptures. So, it is a chocolate museum of sorts! One of my favorites is "Randy the Blues Player" crafted from 925 lbs of chocolate. Wow!

Another incredible creation, the centerpiece tree which is 1,200 lbs of chocolate. The tree is truly magical.

For our treats, we settled on a mocha latte, pecan pie and grasshopper. I totally forgot to take a picture of my mocha latte. Crafted from Grand Cru chocolate, it was divine!

After savoring our treats, we wandered around again. Had to take a picture of me with Neil Armstrong!

Chef Alain Roby has truly created a wonderland! We enjoyed our chocolate adventure on a cold, winter day. The perfect excuse to go out! We did notice while there that the attached restaurant, Primo, has an afternoon tea. We are looking forward to trying that in the near future. I am sure it is a special treat!
