How it tastes: This recipe harks back to more traditional Wensleydale-making methods. Its texture is less crumbly and its flavour more buttery than many examples of Wensleydale more widely available today.

The Wensleydale Creamery sources its milk from small local farms and provides work to over two hundred residents of the surrounding area. In 2013, the company was awarded Protected Geographical Indication status for the name ‘Yorkshire Wensleydale’, recognising and protecting its important link with Yorkshire. The cheeses are made using a less acidic recipe which results in a softer, more complex-tasting cheese. In Hawes, this cheese is referred to as Kit Calvert 'Old-Style' Wensleydale cheese.
