Chef Of The Year 2013


Geneva pastry chef Alain Roby broke his third Guinness World Record Saturday night by creating the world’s longest candy cane, measuring at 51 feet long. Roby, who already holds world records for the tallest cooked sugar building and tallest chocolate sculpture, pulled sugar starting at the Geneva Courthouse and stretched it to the intersection in front of his All Chocolate Kitchen, at 33 S. Third St., on Saturday.
The candy cane fit in well with the festive decorations on Third Street as residents, candy fans and even Mayor Kevin Burns joined in to cheer on Roby.
