La Chocolatrice

La Chocolatrice was launched in November 2019 by Zoë Rutter, following her time spent living in France where she spent some time studying, and sampling, patisserie and chocolate.

Chocolate is an important part of French culture. In most towns in France, there is a Chocolaterie or chocolate shop, and the one she used to visit (far too regularly) was magical. La Chocolatrice captures a small part of that magic to share with you.

La Chocolatrice has two sites; a Chocolate Factory and shop in Coxhoe, Co. Durham, and a Chocolate Studio in Newcastle City Centre.

At the Chocolate Factory,  founder Zoë and her team make a wide range of deliciously dreamy handmade chocolate bars and treats. We love the Milk Chocolate Indulgence and the White Chocolate Biscoff and Cranberry. They also have a great-tasting dairy-free option.

Try out the subscription to The Chocolate Club to be the first to try seasonal specials, such as delicious orange chocolate at Halloween and Some Bunny Loves You on Valentine’s Day. You can also get personalised labels and gorgeous Birthday Gift Boxes to make your gifting extra special.

But that’s not all. Zoë also teaches Chocolate Making Workshops at both locations which are perfect for fun with friends, a different date day or team-building with colleagues.
