Hello, Chocolate Lovers! I'm Zoë, the proud owner of La Chocolatrice, and if there's one thing you should know about me – I'm utterly and unapologetically in love with chocolate. This isn't just a business for me; it's a lifelong affair with the sweetest indulgence that has been a part of my story since childhood.

My chocolate journey started at the tender age of four, with a daily ritual orchestrated by my grandpa. A large bar of chocolate, a whispered secret to hide it, and the simple joy of savouring it when no one was watching. Sharing is caring, but chocolate? That's a solo adventure.

Fast forward to when I was eighteen and found myself in a charming French town, where I worked as an au pair. Surrounded by the enchanting world of French gastronomy, I discovered my passion for cooking, baking, and, inevitably, crafting chocolate. The local Chocolaterie became my haven, sparking a creative flame that led to perfecting the art of chocolate pudding – a hit among the kids I cared for.

Three and a half years in France further fueled my love affair with chocolate. I delved into the intricacies of Patisserie and Chocolate, honing my skills and knowledge. Alongside studying, I conducted chocolate-making workshops in the northeast, spreading the joy of creating delectable chocolate treats.

My journey took an exciting turn in June 2019 when I decided to turn my passion into a reality, and open La Chocolatrice. 

At La Chocoltrice, we make the most delicious range of chocolates, and we teach chocolate making workshops too!  Whether you're a chocolate connoisseur or a novice, our workshops cater to all ages and abilities. From Children's birthday parties to Hen parties and Corporate Team building events, La Chocolatrice offers a range of experiences to suit every taste.

I'd love to welcome you into the world of La Chocolatrice. Explore our workshops, our yummy chocolate bars, ask any questions you may have, and let's make sweet, chocolatey, memories together. Join me on this decadent journey – because life is just a little bit sweeter with chocolate! Hope to see you soon! x
