Rosa (of the Cavendish Hotel)
Rosa Lewis was an English cook and owner of The Cavendish Hotel in London, located at the intersection of Jermyn Street and Duke Street, St. James. Known as the “Queen of Cooks”, her culinary skills were highly prized by Edward VII, with whom she was rumoured to have had an affair in the 1890s. She was also called “The Duchess of Jermyn Street.” Her life was the loose inspiration for the BBC series The Duchess of Duke Street in the 1970s.
