Angie Zoobkoff, Recipe Tester

A list of all the recipes Angie Zoobkoff has tested.

Angie Zoobkoff

Angie Zoobkoff has always been happiest when she's in the kitchen. Encouraged to cook at an early age by both of her parents, Angie spent many weekends as a child in the kitchen, dreaming up and preparing elaborate meals for her family. Years later, Angie spends her days puttering outside during the very short Canadian summer on her acreage outside Calgary, Alberta, where she built her dream garden and greenhouse. She also spends a lot of time happily recipe testing for Leite’s Culinaria, much to the delight of her husband and two children and anyone else who happens to stop by.
