chocolate skyscraperAdAge reports that Alain Roby, the pastry chef of the Hyatt Regency Chicago, won a place in the Guinness Book World Records when he successfully assembled a 20-foot, 8-inch tall skyscraper with a dark chocolate infrastructure and white chocolate windows.

Food Network launched the Guinness World Record Breakers Week for The Food Network Challenge.

The New York appearance was the fourth in a series of stops the network made across the country to promote The Food Network Challenge in conjunction with events such as the Taste of Chicago, the Indianapolis 500 and the Detroit Jazz Festival.

Record attempts for pizza tossing, popcorn sculpting and pancake making will be performed this week.

Challenge host Keegan Gerhard said there is one record that stands: How many sugar-glazed jelly donuts consumed in three minutes without licking lips. Where do I sign up!?!
