A CUMBRIAN food entrepreneur has recorded a podcast for a leading food radio programme.

Maria Whitehead, co-owner and director of Hawkshead Relish, was invited to record a podcast for radio show, Foodtalk, which will air this week.

Each week leading food and drink experts from across the UK are invited to the studio to discuss the latest trends in everything from distribution and delivery to taste profiles and food tech innovation.

The programme has a huge following in the UK and further afield, reaching millions of people across an array of online platforms.

Ms Whitehead said: "It’s always great to have the chance to talk about Cumbria, food and obviously Hawkshead Relish.

"Hopefully I gave the show’s listeners the chance to hear a little of our story."

The show will air this Thursday at 4pm on BBC Radio 4.
