Lesley Stowe is a Parisian-trained chef who began her own catering company more than 20 years ago in Vancouver. Frustrated by the lack of specialty foods in the city, she opened lesley stowe fine foods, offering customers a wide-range and global selection of cheeses, vinegars, oils, breads, house-made entrees, dips, preserves, desserts and hard-to-find grocery items. In 1990, Lesley started selling her delectable dessert creations to the city’s top restaurants and became known for her decadent “Death By Chocolate” confection. The store’s success, combined with Lesley’s ability to predict and capitalize on food trends resulted in the creation of raincoast crisps — a revolutionary snack food beyond compare.
The author of her own cookbook, the lesley stowe fine foods cookbook, Lesley has also contributed to other popular cookbooks including The Girls Who Dish series.
