Sofia Reino, Recipe Tester

A list of all the recipes Sofia Reino has tested.

Sofia Reino

Sofia Reino grew up in many kitchens. Her parents were diplomats, so her life was one of a gypsy, moving from one country to another, one cuisine to the next. Her passion for food and cooking began while she lived in Norway. At age nine, she'd run downstairs to the kitchen as soon as her homework was done to help her mother and the cook prepare a variety of meals. The dishes were mostly Portuguese, but with an international twist, and were prepared for hundreds of people. She spent each summer in Portugal, where again she enjoyed countless hours in the kitchen, this time with her avó (grandmother) and the kitchen helpers. There she learned the family secrets to traditional Portuguese and French recipes. Today she lives in South Carolina, is married to an Irish-American from Boston, and now she has two kitchen helpers of her own in the form of her high school and preschool daughters.
