Baking Tray
Chopping Board
Small Bowl



a) Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7. Pop the garlic (unpeeled) into a small piece of foil with a drizzle of oil and scrunch to enclose it. Place onto a baking tray.

b) When the oven is hot, roast the parcel on the middle shelf until soft, 10-12 mins.

c) Once the garlic has cooled, cut the end with scissors, squeeze it out of the skin and mash with a fork.


a) Meanwhile, cut each block of Cheddar lengthways, then lengthways again to create 4 equal batons per block.

b) Roll each baton of Cheddar in a slice of chorizo and lay seam-down on a baking tray.

c) Drizzle the honey evenly over the top of each rollito and bake on the top shelf until lightly golden, 3-4 mins. TIP: If your honey has hardened, pop it in a bowl of hot water for 1 min.


a) In the meantime, finely chop the chives (use scissors if easier).

b) In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, mashed roasted garlic, saffron and two-thirds of the chives. Season with salt and pepper and mix to combine.

c) Spread the saffron aioli in a circle on your serving plate and stack the baked rollitos on top.

d) Sprinkle over the remaining chives to finish.
