Kendal Farm Shop - From the Romans to Everest...





A whistle-stop taste and tell journey through the Lake District from 70AD to the present day!

Delivered with authority and enthusiasm by our local produce champions, this one hour food adventure allows you to immerse yourself in the rich food history of Cumbria, grazing authentic bite-sized tasters samples as you travel through time and around the region (including a couple of freshly prepared hot tasters).

Along the way you'll find out:
- how Syria has made an indelible mark on the past and present Cumbrian food scene
- how the Vikings are part of the origin story of Cumbria's official traditional dish
- that the German miners invented the Cumberland sausage (or did they?!)
-why you'll be reaching for the pepper pot the next time you have a fruit cake
- how an Lake District accident ended up on Everest

.....and so much more!
