Cumbrian flavour to Come Dine With Me TV show

A Workington hotel duty manager and a west Cumbrian estate agent will be among the stars of the Cumbrian series of Channel 4’s Come Dine With Me on TV this week.

Andrew Carruthers, 45, who works at the Washington Central Hotel, is the star of tonight’s episode.

Viewers will get to see his hotel-themed dinner party, complete with five-star quality food including ‘early reservation’ fishcakes and a ‘do-not-disturb’ truffle.

Tomorrow it’s the turn of fitness fanatic Jonny Thompson to host. Jonny has planned a meaty menu but his fellow guests get to see more of him than they bargained for.

Wednesday’s episode sees sheepdog trainer Katy Cropper take to the kitchen, with prawns cooked al fresco on an open fire and a horseradish sauce, and giving a sheep herding demonstration.

On Thursday, Holly Venning serves Cumbrian scallops and chorizo, Cumberland sausage and Penrith fudge pudding to show her love of the county.

Friday’s episode features Wendy Tinnion, manager of Grisdales in Workington, who brings the competition to a close with a disco. Wendy’s guests are in for a surprise as they learn something unexpected about their host. Each episode is on at 5.30pm.
