Yorkshire family businesses collaborate on summer recipes

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 fellow artisan producers Yorkshire Dama Cheese in Sowerby Bridge in celebration of the warmer months, including Smoked Chilli Squeaky Cheese Flatbreads, Baked Ricotta with Chilli and Spice and Labneh Topped Spiced Carrot Cake.

Marketing Manager, Jennie Palmer said: “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.  Inspired to make dairy products after discovering the distinctive taste of the cow’s milk in local area for the first time, she’s since 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.”
