You Deserve Chocolate
It's easy to fall in love with chocolate. Chef Romeo certainly did when he discovered a passion for chocolate making while taking cooking classes in San Francisco on the weekend to unwind from a fast-paced career in higher education for the past 14 years. In his search for re-centering and relaxing from long work days, Romeo became enamored with the artistry of design, balance of flavors, and the richness of the story of cacao and chocolate-making.
An avid learner, Romeo decided to take a creative sabbatical and a career change. He enrolled and graduated from Ecole Chocolat Professional School of Chocolate Arts and completed the Master Chocolatier Program in Belgium. He continued his studies at the Chicago Chocolate Academy & Atelier Melissa Coppel. He serves as a member of the Fine Chocolate Industry Association. Romeo now calls Long Beach home, and you can try his various chocolate collections as he carefully sources local ingredients and cacao from various regions from around the world.
