Last updated at 13:26, Friday, 06 June 2014
RESTAURATEUR and chef, Simon Rogan, whose reputation has reached stellar proportions, will be the top attraction at Taste Cumbria 2014, the county’s biggest food festival.
The owner of Cartmel’s famed Michelin-starred restaurant L’Enclume, Mr Rogan will be leaving his newest venture at Claridge’s in London to headline at Cockermouth and host the festival’s pop-up restaurant.
His pop-up restaurants at the 2103 Taste Cumbria festival sold out in a matter of days and are expected to be equally as popular this year.
Organised by CN Events, the 2014 Taste Cumbria festival starts on Friday September 26 with a beer festival and comedy night. Then, on Saturday and Sunday, 27 and 28, there will be a packed weekend of master classes, demonstrations and Grub Club family activities, as well as a Produce Market with around 100 stalls offering tastings, shopping and foodie activities. Many of the independent businesses in Cockermouth also join in the event, offering special offers, samples and competitions with a food and drink theme.
Around 30,000 people came to the 2013 Taste Cumbria event, bringing an estimated £1.9 million into the local economy.
Mr Rogan said: “I can’t wait to get back to Taste Cumbria this year. It’s been a mad few months in my business, but there was no way I was going to miss it. I love the challenge of cooking in that unique pop-up environment and bringing my style of dining to new and different audiences. We’re rightly proud of our produce and the talent within our hospitality businesses in Cumbria – Taste Cumbria is an event that no food lover should miss.”
