Add some heat to an old classic. Our garlic bread - as the name suggests - is a doozy. This pairs well with a spicy main dish.


1 sourdough loaf of bread

250g salted butter, coarsely grated

1 long red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped

½ garlic bulb, peeled and finely chopped

1/3 bunch of flat leaf parsley, finely chopped

pepper and salt flakes


Preheat oven to 220C.

Cut sourdough into 2-centimetre-thick slices.

Add the grated butter, chilli, garlic, parsley, salt and pepper to a medium-sized bowl. Mix it by hand – the heat in your hands will help soften it.

Spread it thickly onto one side of each bread slice and put the loaf back together. Wrap in aluminium foil and heat in the oven for 20 minutes.
