KING RICHARD 111 WENSLEYDALE (200g)
Total Cheese Weight: 0.00g
King Richard III is a traditional, cloth-bound, cows’ milk cheese made to a pre-war recipe for Wensleydale. It's moist and creamy, with a honeyed flavour and lower acidity than modern, mass-produced Wensleydale cheeses, and a world away in flavour.
The actual King Richard lll spent a number of his childhood years in Middleham Castle in Wensleydale, some four miles from the original cheesemaker, Suzanne Stirke's, dairy. Suzanne originally revived the traditional recipe for this great, cloth-bound cows’ milk cheese, and has now been passed it on to Andrew Ridley whose dairy is in Lancashire.
When young, King Richard III cheese is a wonderfully clean and fresh tasting cheese, with a mild, slightly lemony, lactic flavour that becomes honeyed.
What's in the box
The presentation of these gifts is really nice! The packaging alone is impressive enough! And then inside is a cheese lovers heaven! The relish was also really tasty!
Great Gift Idea!
I was searching for a gift for my friends birthday. I am so pleased I came across this! Its such a unique gift idea. My friend commented how nice the cheeses were. Five stars from me!
Lovely Gift Pack
I loved this idea! I purchased a Letterbox for my friends birthday. It was such a nice surprise for her. She is a cheese lover and said she had never tasted cheese as good! I will definitely be back!
I do not usually write reviews but I felt this was needed! I have never heard of cheese in a box before but I have to say I was so impressed with the quality of the cheese and everything else inside the box.

Woodside Red is a nutty, hard cheese with a reddish-orange tone and the flavour and texture of cheddar. It gets its colour from the addition of annatto, an American thistle. It adds a bit of pizzazz to dishes when cooked with, but on Friday I’ve taken inspiration from the classic cheese and tomato sandwich for a dish. Tomatoes will be stuffed with cheese, pickled and charred, while the bread element comes from a crispy Woodside Red wafer.
