Lake District Food

The Lake District is famous for its food and has a rich culinary heritage.
Delicacies such as Cumberland Rum Nickie hark back to the days of the East India trading ships which brought exotic spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg into the ports of Whitehaven and Workington.
We have recently achieved protected status for the world famous Cumberland sausage and there are many specialist producers up and down the county.
