LATEST NEWS » WALLACE & GROMIT LAUNCH CHEESY COOKBOOK WITH WENSLEYDALE
Wallace and Gromit have become the latest “celebrity chefs” with the launch of a cracking new recipe book featuring their favourite cheese dishes. The book will be free to cheese lovers who purchase the new 200g pack of Real Yorkshire Wensleydale Cheese from the end of February.
The Wallace & Gromit cook book has been launched to mark the duo’s 15-year relationship with The Wensleydale Creamery in the Yorkshire Dales. Wallace & Gromit became synonymous with Wensleydale cheese in 1989 when, during the Oscar-nominated film ‘A Grand Day Out’, they land on the moon which is made of cheese but, much to Wallace’s disappointment, not his favourite Wensleydale. In the next film, ‘A Close Shave’, Wallace’s new friend Wendolene adds to his disappointment by explaining she doesn’t like cheese, ‘not even Wensleydale’..
Wallace & Gromit’s creator, Nick Park, says: “It’s wonderful that Wallace & Gromit’s association with The Wensleydale Creamery has flourished for so many years and I’m delighted they’ve at last joined the exclusive list of celebrity chefs with their own cookbook. It’s grate!”
The promotion will launch in Morrisons on 21st February and will continue to roll out across other stores.
Hurray! I like the "roll out across other stores" part, makes me excited. I dont think ive ever had wendslydale cheese before. Looks good. But it looks like Im going to have to fly to the moon and eat some plasticine wensleydale cheese and pout.....or go to the store...lol.
lad my moms into cooking, wonder what the recipes are......
I love Wendslydale!
i also love wendslydale, i've been to the factory and seen the cheese made! It's great
I might buy it!
Wishing I was in England, not the States. I have several friends there, and my room mate is an airline pilot, flying to London, from Chicago tomorrow. Having a wee bit of a problem find Wallace and Gromit items near Indianapolis Indiana USA.
Alas! What are we poor folks in the US to do? I can't get any of the stores to carry "plain" Wensleydale.
I've been to the factory, too. Fascinating!
I Love Wensleydale Cheese! It's hard to find in the U.S. I have orderd it from the Yorkshire Creamery,but shippng can be expensive.Having said that,it's my favorite cheese and well worth it.I love Cranberry Wensleydale. I served it to guests over the Holidays,and they loved it!
I would love a copy of this but unfortunatley I live in Canada
Is it not available online?

I've had Wendslydale and it's very good. A bit sweet tho' .
