It’s over 160 years since Sarah Nelson began selling home-made gingerbread from a tree stump outside her Lakeland cottage. Today Grasmere Gingerbread is a household name, and the preferred tea-time treat of such Hollywood A-listers as Tom Cruise, Renee Zelwegger and Nicole Kidman.

In this episode of YumCumbria, we pay a visit to scenic Grasmere to find out how the third generation of owners are dealing with the challenges of the 21st century while maintaining the traditions – and the secret recipe – laid down by the formidable Mrs Nelson.

Carlisle-based wine expert Pippa Sedgwick was just four years old when she had her first sip of vino (watered down of course). So began a lifelong love affair with the grape. In this episode Pippa looks back on her 25-year career, from the early days attempting to make her mark in a male-dominated world to becoming one of Cumbria’s leading authorities on the subject. And in an era when there has never been so much choice, she also gives some top tips on what to look for in the perfect bottle of wine.

EPISODE 2

Top chef Nick Martin is a passionate advocate of Cumbrian food and drink, which is why we caught up with him to find out about almost 40 years on the kitchen frontline, his career as a celebrity chef, and how he went drinking with the legendary Keith Floyd – and lived to tell the tale. And with around 30 pubs closing every week in the UK, we talk to a pair of publicans whose love of beer led them to create one of the county’s up-and-coming independent breweries.
