Introducing Chef Lisa Howard-Sorrell
"At Home Dining" with The Strong Water Co.
We will be working in collaboration with Chef Lisa Howard-Sorrell.
Lisa Howard-Sorrell took the scenic route on her journey to cooking. Beginning with a detour through an economics degree and a few years working in the drinks industry in New York. Looking for a change she began working as a cook in a local restaurant while studying for a biology degree. It quickly became clear that she had found her passion in the kitchen. From there she attended Edinburgh New Town Cookery School and landed a job at noted Edinburgh restaurant- Castle Terrace. With that experience she joined Appetite Events a decorated catering company with an award winning kitchen lead by Iain Thomson.
When the Pandemic struck Appetite was forced to furlough it’s staff. Not wanting to lose momentum Lisa joined Edinburgh Food Social’s Food for Good coalition as a volunteer. During lockdown their small kitchen team sent out over 50,000 meals to vulnerable people in the community. Finally, Lisa has arrived in Banchory, delighted to team up with Strong Water Co. in creating a unique dining experience inspired by the wealth of fresh seasonal ingredients the area has to offer.
