This week we had the pleasure of speaking to Anne and Jennifer Cowan, owners of The Good Sister in Carlisle. The two sisters established their business in 2017, embedding their love of travel and food within their small, but mighty menu.
Originally operating from the indoor market in Carlisle, the takeaway lunches and cakes soon became extremely popular. In September 2019 the business was relocated to Cecil Street, which is now home to The Good Sister Café. The team offer takeaway and sit in breakfast, along with lunch and cakes and bakes.
Paul Sanchez is Executive Chef at Fellpack and The Round in Keswick, both of which are a true celebration of Lake District adventuring, where great food and drink reward the intrepid. You’ll find familiar dishes and classic combinations to suit meat-lovers right through to the die-hard vegans, but each has its own innovative twist.
Richard is the Chef Patron at The Crown and Thistle in Rockcliffe just outside of Carlisle. He re-opened the country pub in June last year, with Jo and their team, many of whom worked together at The Queens in Warwick on Eden and previous to that, The Black Swan Inn, Culgaith. Richard has been a Chef for over 20 years, gaining most of his experience in the Lakes before becoming a Head Chef in 2006.
Gav Winder has been a chef since January 2001 and currently works as senior sous chef at The Halston, Carlisle. His role is predominantly in the function side of the business, but at times he can work in any of the three kitchens within the hotel.
