It's over 160 years since Sarah Nelson began selling home-made gingerbread from a tree stump outside her Lakeland cottage. Today Grasmere Gingerbread is a household name, and the preferred tea-time treat of such Hollywood A-listers as Tom Cruise, Renee Zelwegger and Nicole Kidman.
In this episode of YumCumbria, we pay a visit to scenic Grasmere to find out how the third generation of owners are dealing with the challenges of the 21st century while maintaining the traditions - and the secret recipe - laid down by the formidable Mrs Nelson.
