The Lake District Cheese Company would like to feature some of your easy cheesy recipes, questions and tips for cooking with cheese on their Mumsnet hub (coming later this month).

The Lake District Cheese Company is part of First Milk, the largest dairy farmer co-operative in the UK. With their roots firmly in the Lake District, they source the finest milk from local and surrounding farms, producing a deliciously moreish cheese that embodies all the values and traditions of the Lake District.

They would also like to use some of your recipes, questions and tips in videos which will be hosted by a Lake District chef, Lucy Nicholson from "Lucy's of Ambleside" LucyCooks Cookery School which will be shown on Mumsnet and elsewhere.

So, is there anything you'd particularly like to see Lucy cook, demonstrate or talk about in the videos? Would you like some new ideas for cooking with cheese? Do you have a best ever way of including cheese in your everyday food, what's your favourite cheese recipe? How do you make cheese dishes healthy for all the family?

Everyone who adds a question, tip or recipe to this thread will be entered into a prize draw where one lucky winner will receive a cookery class for two people (the winner and a friend) at LucyCooks Cookery School, at a value of up to £250.00 in total, plus £50 travel expenses to get you to the cook school and some lovely Lake District Cheese Company Cheese.

Many thanks

I just wanted to say what a brilliant weekend I had in The Lakes at LucyCooks. I took my husband and we did the Cumbrian cookery day.
From start to finish we laughed, had fun, ate too much and made new friends. The school was beautiful and very well run. We had a delicious lunch served with wine and got to bring all the lovely food we had made.
We booked into a local Inn to extend our stay and got refunded the money for that the next day.....we got up in middle of night to investigate a strange clanking noise and bumped in to the manager who was mortified we had been woken up. When we checked out, the member of staff said she'd been told not to charge us because of our disturbed sleep. We could not believe our luck!!

Thank you Mumsnet, LucyCooks, Lake District Cheese and The Eagle & Child for a fantastic weekend smile smile smile
