In Part 2 we hear from Lori and Laura about the beginnings of Towpath, from discovering three kiosks for sale on Regent's Canal to the many lessons learned in those early days of running a new restaurant with no on-site kitchen and no indoor seating. Lori also sits down with the talented wildlife cinematographer Sophie Darlington (who films for the likes of David Attenborough for BBC, Netflix, NatGeo, etc) and is a dear friend and regular of Towpath. Lori and Sophie discuss their careers, how their work has some surprising similarities and why Sophie rushes over to Towpath as soon as she gets back from a work trip, hungry for conversation, friends and Laura's wholesome food.
Pick up their new book Towpath: Recipes & Stories directly from Towpath Café, or from Bookshop.org or your favourite bookstore.
