Artisan-Food is an on-line magazine, a directory, a database and a lot, lot more… They cover almost everything about food in Cumbria — restaurants, shops, chefs, farmers, recipes, producers, local specialities, books, news, views, cooking, farmers markets,
online shopping, restaurant reviews, plus loads more.
“The focus is all about local food in Cumbria, who produces it, where to get it, how to cook it, where to eat it and what it’s like.
We have links to all the producers’ on-line shops so you can order directly and get their products delivered to your door.
We are Martin & Cecilia Campbell, we live in Grasmere. Martin is the photographer and looks after the web side of things, Cecilia is the writer and designer.”
A lot of the detailed information is presented using Google’s maps, with clickable links to get more info, such as one showing the location of Rick Stein’s Cumbrian food heroes.
The more frequently updated news section is in blog format.
“We have a section on the site called “news and views”, for the technically savvy it is referred to as a “blog”. It is the part of the site that is updated most inbetween the monthly updates. It contains some great snippets of whats going on in the food scene in Cumbria as well as some curious foodie items. I regularly post material as does Cecilia, but don’t miss our other contributors, such as Ivan Day Cumbria’s great food historian or Paul from Howbarrow Organic farm and Nick our bloggin scouse chef. There is some great stuff on the blogs with the last ten postings showing at any one time.”
