Two Yorkshire family businesses have collaborated to create recipes that celebrate Yorkshire produce.
The team at Thixendale based Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil has created a series of three recipes using cheese and yoghurt from Yorkshire Dama Cheese in Sowerby Bridge to celebrate summer: Smoked Chilli Squeaky Cheese Flatbreads, Baked Ricotta with Chilli and Spice and Labneh Topped Spiced Carrot Cake.
Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil’s Marketing Manager, Jennie Palmer explained the rationale for the recipe creation: “Here at YRO, we’re passionate about spreading the word about fabulous Yorkshire producers. Over the years we have found that the best way to do this is to create recipes that encourage people to try the fabulous food that we have on our doorstep.
“Yorkshire Dama Cheese was established by Razan Alsous after she fled war torn Syria in 2012. She was inspired to make dairy products after discovering the distinctive taste of Yorkshire cow’s milk for the first time and has gone on to win numerous awards for her products that include Squeaky Cheese, Ricotta Cheese and a selection of dairy lines including the spreadable yogurt Labneh that we used to top the spiced carrot cake.”
Mrs Alsous said: “We love the creative ways that the Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil team have used our products in their recipes and we can’t wait to try them – especially the Smoked Chilli Squeaky Cheese Flatbreads.”
Mrs Alsous and Mrs Palmer are both Board Members with deliciouslyorkshire; the organisation dedicated to making Yorkshire food and drink the first choice by respecting tradition, encouraging innovation, and celebrating great taste.
Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil was established in 2008 by the Palmer family on their farm in the heart of the Yorkshire Wolds. They produce a range of oils, dressings and mayonnaise based on their award-winning Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil that is pressed, blended, bottled and labelled on the family farm.
