Gingerbread History
The most famed UK gingerbread is from Grasmere in the Lake District, former home of poet Wordsworth. In 1850 Mrs Sarah Nelson moved to Gate Cottage, once the school. A local French chef encouraged her to make gingerbread. Huge success took her family out of poverty. From a soft cake to ginger biscuit, it usually has molasses and spices. Brought to Europe in 992AD by an Armenian monk, it was widely available by the 1700s. With many world traditions, there is a strong US link to Christmas.

 Gingerbread men who smile!

TV Chef Jamie Oliver thinks Grasmere Gingerbread is “a fantastic explosion of taste”, “utterly unique” and “wickedly chewy”. He craves the recipe locked away in a bank vault! 
