Wensleydale is a cheese steeped in history- a changing history. Cistercian monks brought the recipe from France when they settled in Yorkshire. Originally, Wensleydale was made using sheep’s milk and was typically a blue cheese with mould development encouraged. During the 14th century, the monks began to use proportionately more cow’s milk, changing the character of the cheese. Today, Wensleydale is made only from cow’s milk and is white.

Somerdale Wensleydale is a mild, white, cow’s milk cheese with a supple, crumbly and moist texture. Wensleydale is naturally suited to sweet partners so the addition of lemon pieces and honey is a perfect match!
