Jennie Palmer and Razan Alsous together with their products, Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil and Yorkshire Dama cheese

We’re happy to share the news that we have created a series of three recipes using cheese and yoghurt from Yorkshire Dama Cheese in Sowerby Bridge to celebrate summer. The recipes are for Smoked Chilli Squeaky Cheese Flatbreads, Baked Ricotta with Chilli and Spice and Labneh Topped Spiced Carrot Cake and you can find them on our website.

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 yoghurt Labneh that we used to top the spiced carrot cake.”

Razan 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.

Razan and Jennie 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.
