I just had a question about the usage of de vs du in "l'école du chocolat".
Why can't we say "l'école de chocolat" ? And why are we using "du"?

If you said:
l'école de chocolat
it would mean that the school was made of chocolate.
Hope this helps!
I see this in the sense of a specific school (of chocolat) given that no other subject is taught in this establishment.
Therefore it needs to be described using a definite article de le -> du.
Hope this helps to explain for you.
