Taste Cumbria Food Festival


The fourth Taste Cumbria Food Festival is taking place in Cockermouth on 28th and 29th September 2013. This year’s celebrity chefs Paul Rankin and Aldo Zilli are headlining the festival.

Paul Rankin is the first chef in Northern Ireland to be awarded a Michelin Star and is best known for his BBC TV appearances on shows like Saturday Kitchen and Ready Steady Cook. He will be joined on Saturday’s demonstration by local chef Peter Sidwell.

Aldo Zilli is headlining the festival on Sunday and is an award-winning Italian chef and restaurateur with regular TV appearances. He is returning to Taste Cumbria having appeared in 2009.

Cockermouth will also play host to a big local producers market as well as other food festival attractions and events.

Why not take advantage of the quieter month of September to take in a foodie and Lake District break in one. We still have several cottages in the Cockermouth area available this weekend for short breaks or longer stays.
