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.” Rosa Lewis was a strong woman and a infamous character amongst society and many tales are told of her flamboyance.
