Food & drink 

Sample historic cuisine in Cheshire

Cheshire’s historic gastronomy has been shaped by external influences and traditional recipes that give it a distinctive flavour all its own. Known as the historic mining centre for salt, Cheshire features many cured or salted meats and fish in its traditional recipes. Delicacies in the area include the Cheshire Pork Pye, a flavourful pie with pork loin, white wine, pepper, nutmeg and sugar, and Cheshire cheese, a historic Roman cheese that gains its flavour from cows that graze from the salt marshes in the area. Chester pudding, a simple suet pudding with breadcrumbs, suet and blackberry jam, is also a popular staple. To take in the unique flavours of Cheshire and its historic culinary influences, visit one of the restaurants or eateries near your holiday rental.
