What we do
The Chocolate Tart is a handmade chocolate school teaching the art of the chocolatier to anyone aged 10 -110.
Their online chocolate shop offers a selection of handmade chocolate treats. Here you will find Lisa’s Taste of the West, Gold Award winning products.
It was whilst cooking a dinner for HM Queen Elizabeth back in 2005 that the idea of starting a chocolate school was born!
