Wensleydale Creamery launches ch-easy virtual cooking series

The first Wensleydale Creamery live cooking session will take place on Wednesday

The Wensleydale Creamery, based at Hawes in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, is launching a series of fun and interactive online cookery tutorials set to make the nation’s at-home meals extra special.

Bringing Yorkshire Wensleydale inspired recipes to cheese-lovers’ homes, the four-part live cookery series will launch at 4pm on Wednesday, hosted via the Wensleydale Creamery’s Facebook Live.

The nation’s cheese enthusiasts can create mouth-watering recipes from the comfort of their own home in just 20 minutes, joining Creamery Executive Chef, Ollie Bennett, in cooking the recipes while having the opportunity to ask questions and find out more about what makes them so special.

The Crumble It! Live series will transform simple everyday dishes with creamy, crumbly Yorkshire Wensleydale cheese, demonstrating its versatility, as well as showing how to whip up a show-stopping recipe in a few ch-easy steps from home. Over the four weeks, those taking part can create:

  • Heritage tomato salad with Yorkshire Wensleydale mousse, Yorkshire Wensleydale pesto, honey, walnuts, and capers
  • Fresh asparagus, Yorkshire chorizo and Yorkshire Wensleydale with granary toast, crème fraîche and pine nuts
  • Seared scallops with marinated Yorkshire Wensleydale, sour dough croutons, black olives and red chilli
  • Confit duck with Yorkshire Wensleydale & Cranberries Pithivier, served with pickled veg and a crumble of Yorkshire Wensleydale

The recipes were designed to champion use of British produce, showcasing how Yorkshire Wensleydale can be a great replacement for international cheeses such as feta and an amazing addition to a range of dishes – especially salads as we go into the warmer months!

The Creamery is encouraging its fans to take part and participate in the Crumble It Live series – be it in real time or recreating the recipes later, and has created recipe cards that will accompany Yorkshire Wensleydale cheese bought from their online deli.

Chef Ollie said: “No matter what your ability in the kitchen, these delicious and impressive Yorkshire Wensleydale recipes are simple to create and guaranteed to make mealtimes special.

“Our interactive and fun cookery series will bring together cheese lovers across the UK to cook along with me, ask questions and enjoy delicious and tasty Crumble It! recipes set to liven up your at-home meals.

“We’ve created a range of recipes, some simple everyday dishes and others more impressive showstoppers, but all of them are quick and easy to produce – all made that bit more special with Yorkshire Wensleydale cheese.

“We hope you’ll check out the recipes on our website, add the ingredients to your shopping list and join me live every Wednesday at 4pm on Facebook for a really fun cooking experience.”
