A thim­ble full of di­a­monds

Lancashire Life - - PLACES TO VISIT -

Food is a ma­jor attraction with Si­mon Ro­gan’s L’en­clume res­tau­rant hold­ing two Miche­lin stars and Ro­gan & Co, a more laid back neigh­bour­hood eaterie but there are also good qual­ity inns and teashops to ex­plore.

A note for your diary - there’s a food mar­ket in the vil­lage on Oc­to­ber 19.

Sev­eral of the area’s top food pro­duc­ers and re­tail­ers are based in Unsworth’s Yard, founded by Peter and David Unsworth. It houses a brew­ery of the same name.

Co­me­dian and ac­tor Steve Coogan and ra­dio pre­sen­ter Chris Evans have both heaped praise on the old Lan­cashire vil­lage of Cart­mel with Evans de­scrib­ing it on air as a ‘thim­ble full of di­a­monds’.

Its rep­u­ta­tion has spread across the At­lantic with the New York Times nam­ing it as one of 52 places to visit around the world.

There is in­evitably some de­bate over who in­vented sticky tof­fee pud­ding and where it first saw the light of custard. We are happy to quote chef Jean Christophe Novelli’s ver­dict on the pud from The Vil­lage Shop in Cart­mel as ‘the best in the world.’
