    It means that they are going to change the recipe a little bit, generally to try to make it just a little more interesting.

    Note my amendments to your post. Remember to use correct capitalisation in your written English.

    Re: twist

    Take a look at definition 4c, here: Twist - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary

    If you had looked in the dictionary first, would you have been able to guess that this was the intended meaning?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
