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.

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!

HandGrenadeGromit Posted: Feb 22nd 2011

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

Gromit lad Posted: Feb 24th 2011

sweet cheese? Sounds kind of weird now lol. By the way, havent you noticed Katie and Ellie M have the same profile picture? That has been throwing me off this whole time lol.


Ellie M Aardman Staff Posted: Feb 25th 2011

@Gromit Lad- You're right! I hadn't noticed. It's time for a change I think! Katie can be Tottington (although I think I was Tottington first :-| )

Don't forget you have to buy a pack of the new green wrapper Real Yorkshire Wensleydale to claim your free cook book. Just send the empty pack to Wensleydale Creamery and the book will be expedited at top speed!

Hi Liz, Sorry to hear you were unable to find the Wallace & Gromit special cook book cheese pack at Morrisons in York. Will arrange for you account manager to speak with Morrisons about this - Regards The Wensleydale Creamery

Gromit lad Posted: Feb 25th 2011
