More than a dozen food and drinks producers are showcasing their products in the House of Commons, as part of 'Cumbria Day'.
The event is being jointly run by Taste Cumbria, Cumbria Tourism and six Cumbrian MPs.
Sir Tony Cunningham MP, Tim Farron MP, Jamie Reed MP, John Stevenson MP, Rory Stewart MP and John Woodcock MP, all chose to host the special day, in a bid to raise the profile of Cumbria.
"Food, drink and agriculture is vital to our visitor economy. Recent research showed that £429m was spent by visitors to Cumbria on food and drink in 2011 - the highest spend of any other tourism activity in the county, even accommodation.
"Our producers work with our stunning landscape to create amazing and award winning produce, some of which we're proud to be showing off today."
– Mary Houston, Food Tourism Co-ordinator, Taste Cumbria
