Cioccolato Lombardo's Head Chocolatier06 Jul 2012 Our Friends & Neighbours
Tad Lombardo is Head Chocolatier at Cioccolato Lombardo. Tad’s life took a decidedly sweet turn in 2009 when he left behind a disenchanting career in engineering and created Cioccolato Lombardo.
Although once relatively new to the game, Cioccolato Lombardo have well and truly made up for their late entry into the world of Chocolate. They make exquisite chocolates using Felchlin Couverture and an unbeatable selection of fine and often unusual flavours. Tad’s attention to detail and palate for mixing the unusual has recently earned him a Gold Medal from the Royal Melbourne Show Fine Food Awards. Tad has also collaborated with Ben Shewry to create some amazing desserts for one of Melbourne’s top restaurants, Attica.
See what the fuss is all about by tasting Cioccolato Lombardo’s Gold Award Winning box of 6 Assorted Artisan Chocolates and their delightful Salted Caramel Chocolate Frogs . Tad is always coming up with something new, so visit him at his artisan store at Prahran Market where you can often see Cioccolato Lombardo chocolates being created.
