Italian Family Kitchen
what does it mean?
The name is referring to the fact we are aiming to recreate the atmosphere of the Italian family meals, informal and relaxed. And like the Italian family meals, at Fermento's everybody is welcome! Because the place is so small we guess it could be preferred by couples looking for something intimate, but that doesn't mean we won't be happy to have families if they like what we offer! Like the restaurant, the kitchen is very small too and because everything we offer is homemade, the menu is tasty but simple. Although we made sure that everybody could have a meal here so there will be a children option, some vegan and gluten , too.
We love living in Cockermouth, but can't forget the food of our hometown. We founded Fermento out of love for Italian food, the one your grandmother would prepare for you, simple, genuine and traditional.
At Fermento, everything is designed in order to serve seasonal fruits and vegetables. Wine, Drinks and main ingredients (charcuterie, cheese, buffalo mozzarella, etc) are freshly imported directly from Italy.
