Welcome to our recipes page – we hope that this gets you inspired!

We want to share recipes recommended by local people, ideally those that use our wonderful Dales locally-sourced produce. Using foodstuffs which have been produced locally helps minimise transport emissions, supports the local economy and gives you access to some really top-quality produce.

If you have a recipe to share, please contact us using the web form. Anything goes – we’re interested in snacks, starters, main-courses or puddings…. it can be meat or fish-based, vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free or cater for other dietary specialities… whatever you fancy!

If you have a good local supplier for some of the ingredients then please include them as a recommendation. Please also see our ‘food map‘ which provides details of local produce suppliers within our area.
