Meet the people behind this location
Since 2020, Azzie has proudly served residents in and around the Calabasas community, offering classic gelato with an American twist, as well as artisanal chocolates, pastries, and more. Her background in both family therapy and culinary arts makes her ideally suited to run a business that pairs a welcoming, family atmosphere with exceptional desserts designed to infuse every customer’s life with joy.
Azzie started out as a marriage and family therapist, with degrees from USC and Pepperdine University. Although she loved her job, she couldn’t shake the feeling that she was meant to pursue her passion for cooking and baking, so she went back to school to earn two respective degrees. She first attended the Westlake Culinary Institute, followed by the Academy of Culinary Education.
Hard work and creativity have always played a role in Azzie’s professional life, and with cooking and baking, she employed both in equal parts. She used her intimate understanding of the science behind food to experiment with replicating and improving the delicious dishes she loved, before beginning to teach cooking and baking to others. It wasn’t long before she wanted more, and discovered the perfect marriage of family values and delicious desserts in Tifa Chocolate & Gelato, a company that makes everyone feel like family, from employees to customers.
Her own family – including her incredibly supportive husband, Arya, and three children, Kianna, Rustin, and Bella – is thrilled that she’s taken her passions to the next level with a business that delivers the joy of chocolate to an adoring public. Bella can often be found helping out at Tifa and has become an excellent barista.
When Azzie isn’t busy serving up sweetness to the local community, she enjoys spending time with her family and three beloved rescue dogs – Luna, Jojo, and Duchess. She also loves reading, spinning, and discovering the world through travel. Azzie and Bella proudly participate in National Charity League (NCL), and the family loves giving back through a wide range of charitable organizations.
