This is a recipe which celebrates Cornish luxury but it’s surprisingly easy to make. The scallop shells are a lovely serving suggestion but you can bake this dish in a small ramekin also. The Reserve cheddar adds extra maturity to the flavour with the leek and crab, but you can use one of our other aged cheeses too and still get great results
