Supplied by: The Courtyard Dairy | Delivery Details

A classic tradition throughout Lancashire and Yorkshire is to serve rich, heady and luscious fruitcake with a slice of fresh, zesty, crumbly cheese.  Such a perfect match – it’s no wonder it’s become tradition!

This fruitcake has been especially created to be served with cheese and is delightfully rich and moist.

Made by hand by Robert Didier of Orchard Pigs Bakery

Fruitcake and cheese have been eaten together for hundreds of years

Made by Robert Didier, who trained under Raymond Blanc before setting up his own restaurant in London.  Forced to sell up thanks to a compulsory purchase order (they wanted to put a new railway line right through his plot) he decided to return north and pursue his passion of baking.  Borrowing a farmhouse cake recipe from the famous Mrs Kirkham (of Lancashire cheese fame) he developed this fruitcake specifically to accompany cheese, to sell on the local farmers’ markets where he often shares a stand with the Kirkham cheese-makers and Andy from The Courtyard Dairy.
This is how fruitcake should be – packed full of rich dried fruits and intense heady flavours.

The Courtyard Dairy

Award wining purveyors of world cheeses, their extensive range have been aged to perfection, then hand-cut at the shop. You might occasionally find the same cheese available elsewhere, but we doubt they will taste as good – cheeses matured by The Courtyard Dairy taste simply amazing
