  • I just wanted to say thank you to yourself and Jax for a fantastic day yesterday. The children (and the adults)  loved making and tasting the chocolate, and really enjoyed learning about it, and the difference between high and poor quality chocolate! They were also really delighted to go home with the bag of chocolate they had made as well.

  • Many thanks for the chocolate workshop last week. It was fab! The whole experience was excellent - the calm setting, getting to know new people in such an informal way, learning new skills and eating chocolate! A perfect way to spend a Friday morning! I was so proud of my chocolate creations... although I must say most of what I made has now been eaten! My daughter and husband were very impressed with what I made and loved eating the chocolates too. I will definitely recommend the workshop to friends and family in Bristol and further afield who want a special experience for someone else or a treat for themselves!

  • You were right - we absolutely loved your chocolate workshop today! Thank you so much for an amazing morning, both Lauren and I are delighted with our chocolate creations.  It was a pleasure to meet you and you made us feel so relaxed and welcome.  I hope that your son had a good day at school and he continues with his entrepreneurial success. I will be telling friends and colleagues about your workshops and hope that Lauren will be able to book with a friend for her 18th birthday in December. Will get back to you as soon as possible. Once again thank you for today,

  • Thank you. Wow. The students were buzzing today and all went home and told their parents how amazing you were. We would love to work with you again - and do even more wonderful things with you if we can? You could really work wonders with some of our students as all of them are not so easy. July 2019

Your kitchen and our surroundings made for a lovely atmosphere, and we had so much fun getting messy with all that yummy chocolate. Being 34 weeks pregnant it was so tricky to find a fun activity we could do for my birthday and yesterday was perfect. Thank you.

    Beth Rapson, March 2018

  • Just to say  thank you for my very entertaining and instructive afternoon in the art of 'real' chocolate making. Bob Lewis, Oct 2017

  • I just want to say thank you so much for looking after us all on Saturday! Hardly anybody had heard of you before they arrived and they all loved it. Some are even talking about coming to you again! It worked really well as a 'hen' activity and we all had a lovely pub lunch afterwards, too. We appreciated you ringing them to say we were running a bit late! I brought different groups of friends and family to the workshop with me, including my mum and future mother-in-law, but I felt the workshop was perfect for everyone.

  • Hi Lisa just wanted to say a massive thank you for yesterday. We all had an amazing time, loved every minute. But most of all thank you for making it possible for my mum to do this. Thought you might like the photos to let other 82 year olds know that even with wonky legs and hands it's still possible to be in chocolate heaven 😀😀 wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas. Hope to see you again next year xxxx

    Jennifer Rogman, Dec 2016

  • Thank you very much for an excellent session yesterday - Gill and I enjoyed it very much. I am trying to ration my consumption of the chocolates made but the smell of chocolate in my kitchen is almost too much to resist - don't know how you cope with that delicious aroma when you are working.

  • Thanks for such a great afternoon of chocolate escapism

    Jenny Warner, March 2016
  • We had a lovely relaxing, creative and informative morning at The Chocolate Tart.  As well as showing us simple, but effective, techniques to make and package beautiful and delicious chocolates, Lisa was full of practical tips and able to explain the complex chemistry which will hopefully enable us to make them just as well at home.  Her knowledge and passion for chocolate came across very clearly.  We came away with lots of lovely chocolates which even impressed my grumpy 14 year old son!  Highly recommended.

    Tania Lake, Jan 2016
  • Our office had a really lovely day chocolate making.  The chocolate moulds were particularly fun and the chocolate boxes were very impressive.  I have kept mine for Christmas but I know many of the team were unable to wait that long!! Many thanks to you and your team.  The day was well organised and you really helped with the planning too.

We all had a really great time and I was most impressed with the chocolates that we've all brought home and especially the bars you made for Gaia. We haven't actually eaten any of it this evening as it looks so pretty (and the kids were quite full of chocolate already!)

  • Just had a very enjoyable 3 hr session at the school. Not only learnt some of the basics of cooking with chocolate but amazingly how to make three types of finished product; twice coated truffles, variously topped florentines and moulded animals with coloured features. A cleverly put together and run course by Lisa who was so helpful and encouraging that everyone in the room joined in with chat from the off. An excellent place to learn if you like chocolate. 

    Ned and Jane Kelly
  • Totally worth the trip all the way from Nelson Bay Australia!!! Thank you to google and Lisa!! it was great to meet you - and you were right to send us to Glastonbury and Stonehenge on our way to The Chocolate Tart.

Chocolate Making Workshops

The Chocolate Tart

Recently we have made a very tough decision. This has come about after our experience of being a family entirely dependant on the leisure and hospitality industry and our Airbnb accommodation to bring in our self employed income. During 2020 the tier system and lockdowns allowed my workshops to be only allowed to operate for a few weeks, also with Covid safe reduced capacity. It was a challenging time. So, we have made the extremely tough decision to sell our family home along with my workshop and our Airbnb above it. Those of you who have attended my wonderful chocolate workshops will know that they happen in a beautiful converted barn beside our house. I will miss this fabulous and unique workspace that I have been so lucky to work in every day, very much. How spoilt I have been!

I will continue to make a smaller offering of my handmade chocolates from my home kitchen in our new home town of Clevedon. Just as soon as I feel brave enough, and more importantly I am allowed to offer chocolate workshops again, I will find new premises for my school.

Watch this space and my social media for new news!!

In the meantime you can buy my chocolates from my online shop  for a lovely treat or I can post directly if it's a gift for a loved one or colleague with a personal handwritten message. 

below is my pre 2021 workshop descriptions!! Saved for you to read and understand what I hope to rebuild in a safer future!!
