At Wensleydale Creamery, we’re passionate about local produce that can be perfectly paired with our handcrafted, artisan cheese. Fruit cake served with Yorkshire Wensleydale cheese is top of the list and is a true Yorkshire delicacy in its own right.
It’s a long-standing tradition and very popular around these parts, to serve fruit cake with a slice of creamy, crumbly Yorkshire Wensleydale cheese. We enjoy this paring all year round and find it especially popular at Christmas. The unique fresh flavour and crumbly texture of our Yorkshire Wensleydale cheese creates a beautiful savoury flavour to both contrast and complement the richness of the sweet, indulgent fruit cake. We’ve teamed up with our local Cockett’s bakery to bring you this fantastic partnership.

Yorkshire Wensleydale Cheese
Yorkshire Wensleydale cheese is handcrafted at the Wensleydale Creamery at Hawes in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, to a time-honoured recipe using milk from local family farms. This guarantees the quality and authenticity of our cheese, to create its unique flavour and iconic, much loved, creamy, crumbly texture.
