(KCBS) – KCBS Food and Wine Editor Narsai David reviews a really crispy, crunchy cracker that’s more like a cookie: Lesley Stowe’s Raincoast Crisps. The flavors are intriguing: Rosemary Raisin Pecan, Cranberry Hazelnut, Fig and Olive, Salty Date and Almond, or of course The Original. Try them with some cream cheese and smoked salmon or just plain dip.

Listen to Narsai’s Review:

Parisian-trained chef, best-selling cookbook author and entertaining expert, Lesley Stowe began a small Vancouver, B.C. catering company more than 20 years ago where she created her signature artisan style cracker known as Raincoast Crisps.

They’re available at Whole Foods Market, Oliver’s, Nugget, Sunshine Market, CalMart, Woodlands and Scotty’s Market in the San Francisco area. The retail pricing per unit is $7.99 to $8.99.
