Steph’s passion for food, music, art and, in particular, chocolates culminated from her many years of traveling throughout the world as a sports therapist. Her international exposure inspired her to combine her art with chocolate in 2016. She created Bella Sophia Chocolates, named after her daughter, as an artisanal hand painted chocolate company. Steph has studied and immersed herself in every aspect of chocolate making from the highest and purest quality of Cacao, to farming and harvesting, to fermenting, roasting and grinding, all for the love and dedication for making her internationally inspired chocolate creations. Steph’s recipes come from her creative vision and influences she’s learnt from some of the world’s best chocolate masters. Steph grew up surfing the California Coast, backpacking, running marathons and is a black belt in taekwondo.
