Evocative of cliffs and coastlines, cottages and clotted cream, the range and will make a great addition to any home, whether by the sea or in the city.

Cream Cornwall say:
''We love our mackerel heads; they remind us of a Stargazey pie, a Cornish dish originating from a small fishing village called Mousehole. The pie is traditionally eaten during the festival of Tom Bawcocks Eve to celebrate his heroic catch during a very stormy winter, saving the village from starvation. The pie is made with the whole fish, with the heads poking through the pastry top appearing to gaze at the stars''.
