A new magazine for food fans in Cumbria is set to be launched this month.

Taste Cumbria magazine will celebrate the people, places and ingredients that have made The Lake District and Cumbria one of the country’s food capitals.

The new magazine – published by CN Group, the award-winning company behind Choose Cumbria – launches on Wednesday, July 12.

The publication follows the popularity of Taste Cumbria’s food festivals, which attract thousands of visitors to Cockermouth, Whitehaven, Ulverston and Kirkby Lonsdale.

Publishing Director Richard Eccles, who is also editor of Cumbria Life magazine, said: “Cumbria’s food scene is thriving with new Michelin-star restaurants, trendy cafes and artisan bakers, brewers and coffee-roasters all causing a buzz in our towns and villages and boosting growth in food tourism.

“Food and drink is a vital part of Cumbria Life magazine, and its food and drink awards celebrate the growing strength of the sector every year.

“This has given us the confidence to launch a dedicated regional food magazine for Cumbrian food lovers and visitors who want even more food and drink content, ideas and inspiration in a beautiful new format.”

The magazine, which will be published every two months and costs £3.95, will feature news about the latest Cumbrian products and openings, as well as recipes and ideas from top chefs, and expert columns on wine, coffee, and the hospitality industry.

Mr Eccles added: “We are delighted to be expanding the legacy of the original Taste Cumbria vision with Taste Cumbria magazine.

“We want to work closely with the sector in Cumbria to celebrate and promote our amazing food offer inside and outside the county.”

Taste Cumbria magazine will be on sale at selected newsagents and all Booths stores. Subscriptions are just £15 for six issues. To order a mailed copy of the first issue go to or call 01228 612760.
