Here you see the Wensleydale just after it came out of the mold.
Wensleydale is an English cheese.
It is a firm and slightly flaky cheese.
It is moist, succulent and slightly sweet with no after-taste.
Wensleydale is perfect to
accompany fresh fruits such as apples, pears, grapes, grapefruit and strawberries.
Here the wheel is shown after it has been coated with wax.
Wensleydale cheese has been made in Wensleydale England since 1150,
when the Cistercian monks first settled in that dale.
Here are the notes made by the Cheesemaker i.e. Joan
Note: the circled number 45 means that this is the 45th cheese wheel made by Joan
Note: The first four images show the cheese before the wax coating was applied
