TOP-NOTCH chefs who cook for British Formula One hero Lewis Hamilton have been on a chocolate workshop in Congresbury.

Cooks from Absolute Taste in London, jointly owned by Vodafone McClaren Mercedes boss Ron Dennis and managing director Lyndy Redding, spent a day with cocoa expert Lisa Clarke, of The Chocolate Tart.

LisawHehH runs workshops for chocoholics from her kitchens in Kent Road, and is Lyndy's childhood friend.

The chefs were sent to the village on Tuesday as a treat for all their hard work during the year where they made Valentine's Day goodies.
