Carlisle Traditional Food 

1. Grasmere Gingerbread

This secret recipe is an original recipe made in 1850 by the local shop “Grasmere Gingerbread”  located in Grasmere’s tiny Lakeland village. The lady who owns the shop created the best gingerbread you’ll eat in your life. Topped with sugary, sandy, gingery crumbs, your taste buds will be exploding with the flavour of this garlic bread.  

2. Salt Marsh Lamb

Marshes are wetlands dominated by herb plants rather than woody plants, usually used for grazing livestock. The meat produced by these kinds of marshes is rich in flavours as the animals feed on aromatic herbs rather than the usual woody plants. Therefore, trying the Salt Marsh Lamb meat will be quite the experience, your taste buds will thank you.  

3. Cumberland Sausage

What makes this sausage special is that it’s made out of chopped pork meat not minced, which makes it chunky textured. Herbs and spices are added to the meat for a more deep, rich flavour. It’s sold in very long strains, rolled in a flat with a circular coil.
