Perfect Garlic Bread (Felicity Cloake)

1 ciabatta loaf
100g salted butter, at room temperature
4 cloves of garlic, crushed
Small bunch of whichever parsley you prefer, finely chopped
40g parmesan, grated, plus a little extra for topping
Squeeze of lemon juice

1. Preheat the oven to 220C. Very carefully cut the ciabatta into slices, making sure not to go right through, and put it in the middle of a piece of foil large enough to wrap around it.

2. Beat together the other ingredients, apart from the extra parmesan until well combined, then gently force the butter between the slices (this will be messy, but it’s well worth it). Sprinkle the top of the loaf with the remaining cheese, and seal the foil around the loaf.

3. Bake for about 20 minutes, then open the foil and bake for another five minutes, and devour as soon as it’s cool enough to handle.
