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

Gingerbread History
This famed gingerbread is from Grasmere in the Lake District, the former home of Lakes poet William Wordsworth. Mrs Sarah Nelson moved to Gate Cottage, the old school, in 1850. The local French chef encouraged her to make gingerbread! Huge success ended the family’s poverty. As a soft cake or as a crisp ginger biscuit, molasses and spices are normally used. In Europe since 992AD from an Armenian monk, it was widespread by the 1700s.
