Nina’s baking is influenced by her time at a bakers in Dusseldorf, where bakeries still have a 100 varieties of bread from Dark Rye through to White Sourdough with 200 year old Sourdough Starters. After moving to the UK she worked with several of the 'New Wave’ bakers in the North of England which has led to a mix of the two cultures in her own baking. This can also be seen in Nina’s Cakes and Pastries which range from Traditional Scones, Teacakes, Victoria Sponges to Continental influenced Cinnamon Swirls, Red Wine & Chocolate Cake and Pear & Cinnamon.
Sedbergh could be considered a little hidden gem on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, close to Kendal the gateway to the Lakes. Some might say a ‘thinking man’s Lake District’. The town is dominated by the Howgills Fell, a unique landscape unto itself with elements of both the rest of the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. The area holds some considerably good quality produce for anyone with a passion for cooking. History steeped in farming producing unique Kendal Rough Fell Lamb, Galloway Beef and many other Rare Breed Sheep, Pigs and Cattle, as well as Wild Foods in abundance from Wild Garlic and Jack-By-The-Hedge to Wild Venison and some of the Hardiest Rabbits you might see. The majority of ‘Three Hares’ meat is produced within a 20 mile radius of the establishment with many Wild Foods picked and caught using ‘Traditional Methods’. Venture outside the immediate area then you have some of the most special produce at the doorstep with an array of producers, farmers and brewers throughout Cumbria, Yorkshire and Lancashire with some of the greatest pasture and coastline you can find.
