A CELEBRATION of some of the area’s small cheese makers is being held in May.
Country Harvest, near Ingleton, is holding a cheese and wine evening on May 19 to help promote local cheese makers and encourage people to explore the fantastic food made on their doorstep. The cheeses include one made by a young farming couple who are diversifying into the world of cheese making for the first time; others are by more established makers with decades of experience behind them.
For some it will be the first chance to try cheeses like Fellstone, a Wensleydale-style cheese made by Clare and Tom Noblet at their 250-acre upland hill farm Whin Yeats in Hutton Roof.
Other cheeses on offer at the tasting in May include one produced by Ribblesdale, a small artisan producer based in Hawes which specialises in goats cheese; the milk is sourced from a single herd of goats in Lancashire and used to create cheeses on their Yorkshire farm. Sykes Fell Ewes Milk cheese, handmade by the Procter family in Goosnargh, will also be on offer at the event, alongside a Blue Swaledale , rich from cows’ milk with a natural rind, crafted in Richmond, North Yorkshire.
The five cheeses will all be accompanied by wines selected by Chris Leather from Stainton Wines in Kendal. Chris will host the evening and discuss each of the wines in turn and why they should be paired with that particular cheese.
