Davidstow Cheese & Herb Twists


These cheese twists are perfect for the whole family but taste so much better than you may remember as a child. The mature tang of aged cheddar works with the sweet shallot, spring onions and bright chive. It’s a simple flavour combination of allium and cheese that is a timeless classic.
