ABOUT CHOCOLATE ARTS

13089834363_c9102f1733_b
Since 1992, Chocolate Arts has quite literally been breaking the mold. One of the first chocolatiers in Vancouver to make their confections entirely by hand, owner and head chocolatier Greg Hook and his team have continued to set themselves apart as pioneers in the production of playful, innovative chocolate creations while remaining true to artisanal quality and traditions.

A born and bred prairie boy from Saskatchewan, Greg began his career as a cook, but quickly transitioned to pastry chef and finally to chocolatier in his desire to master every aspect of the culinary arts. As a lifelong student and insatiable experimenter, his calling ultimately lay in the complexities and creative possibilities offered by working with chocolate. With its ever-expanding and continuously evolving lineup of products (complete with vegan and vegetarian options), Chocolate Arts stands as a testament to Greg’s passion and his team’s dedication to creating high-quality confections that cater to every palate.

Located in the heart of Kitsilano, just steps away from Granville Island, Chocolate Arts is at once a shop and café, catering to the sweet-seeker, the gift-hunter and the hungry alike. Housemade sandwiches, pastries, coffees and chilled chocolate milk are made on-site daily, while a customizable hot chocolate bar allows guests to create their perfect cocoa. Summer brings Chocolate Arts’ decadent, one-of-a-kind ice cream bars, made entirely in-house, using only the freshest, local ingredients.

The first Vancouver chocolate shop to align itself with the local, sustainable movement, Chocolate Arts sources locally grown, organic and seasonal products wherever possible, including peaches, pears, pumpkins, berries, and hazelnuts. Avid experimentation and innovation ensures that the truest and boldest flavours stand out in their lineup of chocolates, truffles, bars, spreads and sculptures, effectively capturing the spirit and taste of British Columbia and the Pacific West Coast.
