We are all now familiar with fashionable sour dough and multigrain loaves, but whatever happened to the remarkable home made breads once produced in Cumbrian farmhouses distant from the town bakeries and now entirely forgotten?  How many of you have ever heard of  kitcheness bread, snap and rattle, scrapcake, tharf and handhoven - all extraordinary culinary throwbacks to a distant Nordic world. In an illustrated lecture, local food historian, Ivan Day, will share an important discovery of a small surviving kitchen where some of these rural delicacies were once made.
