Sample delicious local produce on a food safari


Enjoy English local produce at its best on a food safari with Annette Gibbons OBE.

If your definition of locally-sourced food is anything from the nearest supermarket and seasonal produce means checking the sell-by-date on a ready-meal, it’s about time you went on one of Annette Gibbons’ legendary food safaris. Annette has been championing real food in Cumbria for years and has even been awarded an OBE for her efforts. What she doesn’t know about food is not worth knowing and that’s what makes her tailored tours around the area’s artisan producers so insightful.

You get to meet the artisans in person and see exactly how they craft their produce. And trust us, witnessing exactly how the county’s cheeses, chutneys and Cumberland sausages are sourced and prepared makes those obligatory samples all the more scrumptious. As you are chauffeur-driven from place to place, you’ll develop a full appreciation of the Cumbrian countryside as well as its natural bounty. The three-course lunch taken in a beautiful private estate cements Annette’s reputation as a gastronomic guru. Your approach to food will be changed forever - soon you’ll be replanting your garden and making your own culinary treats.
