Three Delicious Recipes Using Local Cheese
What better way to celebrate National Cheese Day (4th June) than with a deliciously cheesy dish made using local ingredients?
Couscous Tabbouleh with Yorkshire Squeaky
Razan and Raghid make their cheese in a charming, historic area of Calderdale in West Yorkshire and this recipe is a favourite of Razan's. She likes to cook this for her family, generally using mint-flavoured Yorkshire Squeaky, though you could use the plain version and add fresh mint to the tabbouleh. I've enjoyed this with the chilli-flavoured cheese, to give the dish a little heat.
Mantecatura Risotto with Leeds Blue Cheese
The term mantecatura refers to the stage towards the end of cooking the risotto in which you stir in the final ingredients - the blue cheese in this case - to create a wonderfully creamy texture.
Doddington Dairy's Fish Pie with Flat-Leaf Parsley and Sorrel
This recipe is a celebration of the two border regions, based on Maggie's Doddington cheese from Northumberland and local Eyemouth fish from across the Scottish border in Berwickshire, though you can use any white fish (haddock, cod or pollack) here.
