Lesley Stowe Books & Biography
LESLEY STOWEis a Parisian-trained chef who began her own catering company two decades ago in Vancouver. In 1990, she started selling her dessert creations to restaurants and became known for her decadent “Death by Chocolate” confection. Frustrated by the lack of specialty foods in the city, she opened Lesley Stowe Fine Foods, offering customers a global selection of cheeses, vinegars, oils, breads, as well as tastings and classes. The store’s success and Lesley’s ability to predict and capitalize on food trends has resulted in the creation of Lesley Stowe’s Raincoast Crisps—a delicious, nutritious cracker—and Lesley’s contributions to several cookbooks, including The Girls Who Dish series.
