We proudly champion the flavoursome match of Yorkshire Wensleydale & Fruit Cake – we even commissioned a nationwide survey with Opinion Matters to explore other foodie traditions and pairings.
Yorkshire Wensleydale cheese and fruit cake is a truly popular Christmas pairing and sits proudly amongst the long-standing traditions of God’s Own County. However, we love to eat this treat all-year-round!
The combination of Yorkshire Wensleydale cheese with fruit cake is a renowned Yorkshire delicacy, with the creamy, crumbly flavour of the cheese complementing the rich, sweet fruit cake.
Our online deli is a one-stop-shop for all of your fruit cake and cheese needs. We proudly sell locally sourced Wensleydale Fruit Cake from a bakery in our market town of Hawes. We have gifting options for the hard-core fans and personal-sized fruit cakes for those wishing to dip their toes in! Shop now!
Some enjoy a slice of extra-mature Yorkshire Cheddar, Yorkshire Wensleydale & Cranberries or a Wensleydale Blue on their fruit cake but if you are new to this pairing – we suggest you start with the traditional Yorkshire Wensleydale and work your way up!
