More about this

This cheese and fruitcake box includes:

Fruitcake.  410g / (2 x 410g)
Made by Robert Didier who trained under Raymond Blanc before setting up his own restaurant in London.  Forced to sell up thanks to a compulsory purchase order (they wanted to put a new railway line right through his plot) he decided to come back North and pursue his passion of baking.  Taking a farmhouse recipe from the famous Mrs Kirkham (of Lancashire cheese fame) he developed this fruitcake specifically for cheese to sell on the local farmers markets where he often shared a stand with the Kirkham’s and Andy of The Courtyard Dairy.
This is how fruitcake should be – packed full of rich dried fruits and intense heady flavours.

Richard III Wensleydale.  Pasteurised cows’ milk, vegetarian.  310g / 620g.
An ancient Wensleydale recipe that produces a moister, less-crumbly, acidic cheese. At The Courtyard Dairy it is sold in the traditional manner at one month old, Richard III Wensledyale flavour is clean and light with a gentle, milky and lemony flavour.
