SLIGHTLY LIGHT HEARTED OPINION ON WENSLEYDALE WITH CRANBERRIES FOLLOWS - NOT MEANT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY....
REAL OP ON WENSLEYDALE CREAMERY AT THE BOTTOM...
"Pardon me boys, but was that the crap cheese you chew chewed?"
For the faint hearted or queasy stomached amongst you, a bit of advice .... STOP READING NOW!!!
Can you believe anything more likely to impact negatively on your ability to keep food down where it belongs than a slab of cheese which has been destroyed by sticking unpleasant stuff in it? Cottage cheese with pineapples, chives, onions, sweetcorn, orange, even vanilla, are bad enough, but just the thought of cheese (especially Wensleydale) containing cranberries ... well, it's enough to fair get your gastric bits churning, ain't it?
And in classic style, Ciao has seen fit to stick this suggestion up, and not only that, but under the cheese (cheddar) section too - is this bad taste day or what?
Well, at least with the Bank Holiday there won't be too many people rushing to read this and ruin their few nice days off...
Checking out the magnificent Google for wenselydale with cranberries brought up "Did you mean: wensleydale with cranberries" (silly me), and clicking yes increased my hits from a single solitary one (the dyslexic's guide, I suppose) to an astonishing 260. Refining the search by adding in the inverted quotes so I got the exact results I was looking for, still got me 143 ... BLIMEY!!!
First on the list - the Wensleydale site at http://www.wensleydale.co.uk/herbs.htm - promised "Try this combination - Traditional Wensleydale cheese with plump, juicy cranberries. An innovative complement of flavours and a superb visual experience." There was even a link to its own page - http://www.wensleydale.co.uk/cranberry.htm
iginal creation, Hawes Wensleydale Cheese with Cranberries displays an innovative combination of flavours and dramatic visual impact. The natural wholesome goodness, rich in vitamins, of this delicious creamy-white cheese, with its flaky open texture, fresh clean flavour and honeyed-after taste is only enhanced by the delicate fruity succulence of pure sweet Cranberries.
"A superb dessert cheese, perfectly complements a range of medium sweet white wines and light fruity reds.
"Health conscious discerning food lovers demand quality natural products from their place of origin. Situated in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, a designated Environmentally Sensitive Area, where the use of artificial chemicals, fertilizers and nitrogen is restricted, are many small non-intensive farms. Cows graze sweet limestone meadows rich in herbs. It is this herbage that gives the milk and hence the cheese its special Dales flavour.
Hawes Creamery, the only one in Wensleydale with this unique source, hand makes, to time honoured traditional recipe the only true Wensleydale Cheese in the World.
"Whilst Wensleydale cheese has been made in the Dale for over a thousand years it was only recently that, (despite Cranberries formerly being another local product), the two were united to create inestimable satisfaction. The deep sun ripened fruit, whose health giving properties have been well documented, provides the perfect partner."
This stuff sounds not like any cheese I have ever known, but more a sick maker's delight... "deep sun ripened fruit"? ... the script writer must have fair taken leave of his senses, or it's an April Fool joke ... nope, they're serious...
When I eventually pick myself up from the floor, I content myself with the safe and sound knowledge that this is one thing Mrs D is never going to buy for me, after all she kno
ws she gets a quick back hander for anything the slightest bit exotic - chips man, me, remember.
OK, real bit...

If you're into cheese then you'll like the place, if you don't then you won't - simple really...
Chorus of boos and cat calls, as dave27 exits the building having annoyed the mass hordes of Dooyooers everywhere ... wonder how many will read down to this point and recognise that it's a jape, a wheeze, a prank, to test out whether people actually read this stuff ... if you have then tell me about my revolting carrots ... I once tried this test out on Ciao, and was amazed by the results.
Wensleydale Creamery is a good place to visit, offering an excellent day out for the whole family - visitors centre, restaurant and museum.
