Ainsley Gets A Taste Of The Lake District At Ennerdale Country House Hotel

Cooking up a storm at this year’s Whitehaven Food Festival, celebrity chef Ainsley Harriott decided to retreat to Ennerdale Country House Hotel in Cleator.

Head chef at the Ennerdale Country House Hotel, Trevor Pearson was thrilled to know that the TV chef was staying at the hotel and even more so when Ainsley stepped into his Kitchen.

Trevor says: “When I heard Ainsley was going to be staying at the hotel I was overjoyed at the opportunity to meet him, as were all the staff and guests. However, I never expected he would come and introduce himself personally to me and compliment me on my ‘perfect Yorkshire Puddings’!”

He adds: “I also got the chance to serve him one of our Cumbrian breakfasts, which as a chef, to be able to feed one of your peers, and one of Ainsley’s high calibre, is a very proud moment.”

This year over 100,000 people attended the Whitehaven Food Festival, where using local produce the chefs created mouth watering dishes.

General Manager, Diane Tinnion at the Ennerdale Country House Hotel, a Grade II listed building nestled within five acres of landscaped gardens, comments further: “Ainsley is a larger than life character and it was an absolute pleasure to welcome him to the hotel.”
