Using 2,000 pounds of chocolate and sugar, Alain Roby built a replica of his home kitchen. The chocolate kitchen comes complete with cabinets, a stove, a sink, a tiled backsplash, teapots and dishes. The master pastry chef began work on the project last year when he received a chocolate donation from Belgian chocolaterie Callebaut. He started off by melting the chocolate into molds he designed himself and then connected the parts using more chocolate. He then made the dishes using sugar, glazed the tiles and sculptured them into the desired shapes. Roby is also famous for building a 20-foot chocolate skyscraper and a 22-foot-tall Christmas tree made of chocolate.
