5 Delicious Delicacies from the Lake District

Graham Hadaway - Friday, August 07, 2015

 

 

The Lake District is home to some of the UK’s best and most beloved cafes, gastro-pubs and restaurants, and part of the secret behind our award winning eateries is an insistence on the use of local produce and traditional cooking methods.

 

Below we’ve picked some of our favourite delicious delicacies for you to sample when you come to stay at the Cranleigh.

 

Cartmel Sticky Toffee Pudding

It’s hard to believe that Cartmel Sticky Toffee Pudding is only just celebrating its 25th anniversary it has become such a popular mainstay of the area. One for those of you with the sweetest of sweet tooth’s, Cartmel Sticky Toffee Pudding is made using traditional Cumbrian baking methods and has fans coming from all over to pick up some samples – in fact rumour has it that Johnny Depp puts orders in for it to be delivered to his home in London.

Cumberland Sausage

Much like Parma Ham, Feta Cheese, and Champagne, Cumberland Sausage is so synonymous that it has protected status ensuring that it can only be produced in the area. Available from butchers, restaurants, and pubs all over the area, Cumberland Sausage is famed for its distinctive coil, high meat content, intense seasoning and rough-cut texture to the meat. Due to the size and consistency, the Cumberland Sausage is one for those of you with the heartiest of appetites.

 

Grasmere Gingerbread

Not a biscuit and not a cake but somewhere in between, Grasmere Gingerbread can trace its roots all the way back to 1854 when Sarah Nelson perfected her recipe for this spicy-sweet sensation. Since then the popularity of the confectionary has grown and grown and her legacy lives on in the Grasmere Gingerbread Home, with Andrew and Joanne Hunter continuing to make one of our areas best kept secrets.

Jennings Brewery

The Lake District has become more and more famous for its variety of microbreweries over recent years, but Jennings remains one of the oldest and most well-known. Based in Cockermouth, Jennings regard themselves as a truly traditional Lake District brewer from top to bottom – they use pure Lakeland water for brewing, and only the finest natural ingredients are added to their award winning ales. If you have a designated driver with you, we recommend a tour of the brewery.
