Cooking Up a Cumbrian Fry, B&B Style

I’m staying with Val and David Fisher, who run Howe Keld, my favorite B&B in Keswick — the best home-base town for exploring the Cumbrian Lake District in northern England. It occurred to me that a great B&B is great only when it’s run by hands-on owners…and there’s a lot of work they have to do behind the scenes. I surprised Val and David with my little camera during their busy time in the kitchen so that you can have a Back Door look at how the traditional Cumbrian Fry (breakfast) is cooked up. This hearty meal came in handy as the sun started to shine, kicking off a fabulous day of filming. We finished our TV show with all the sunny glory we had been waiting — and praying — for.

  1. One of the most tasty breakfasts I ever had was cooked by Gunter in Zell on Mosel. His wife Gertrude would have killed him if she knew he was indulging himself and us. We all need a break occasionally from the nutrition Nazis. But just occasionally. Doesn’t matter that Paula Deane says she’s our chef not our cardiologist.
