Leading chefs from Cumbria will be showing customers of Lakeland’s flagship gingerbread store.

Using kitchen equipment supplied by Lakeland, chefs Martin Frickel, John Crouch, Pat Russell, Karen Healy and Ben Donkin will host monthly in-store cookery demonstrations from August through to December.

Joanne Hunter, co-owner of the 168-year-old Grasmere Gingerbread, said: “Down the years, many of our customers have sent us recipes that incorporate Grasmere Gingerbread.

“So we thought it would be a fantastic idea to challenge some of our region’s most accomplished chefs to create a series of unique dishes.

“I think they have invented some amazing recipes and I can’t wait to try them.

“It will be great to renew our association with Lakeland as during Storm Desmond in 2016 - which seriously affected footfall to our shop in Grasmere - they welcomed our pop-up shop at their store.”

The monthly series begins on Thursday, August 18, with Martin Frickel, followed by John Crouch on Thursday, September 15.
