Cumberland sausage wins protected status

lankyshire sent me this link to the BBC’s confirmation that the Cumberland sausage is now a protected species, ranking alongside the likes of Champagne, Parma ham and Greek feta cheese in having Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status under EU law.

“Good job too”, says Son of Mine, pictured here tucking into a very delicious specimen recently at the Four in Hand in Keswick.

  1. The next time you go up there, take a short detour off the M6 to a village called Burton in Kendal where at a butchers shop run by the Crayston brothers you will find the most sublime cumberland sausage!!!
