Recipe ingredients and directions:

Take a standard loaf, cut off the crusts whole, and cut the bread

into thick slices. Butter these on both sides (with garlic butter).

Form back into a loaf and tie up into shape (if you never tried it

before, try dental floss instead of string - also good for trussing

chickens). Rub the whole loaf with butter and wrap in aluminium

foil. Heat in a hot oven. About 10 mins before serving, unwrap the

foil and allow the loaf to become brown and crisp. Untie and bring

whole to table. This makes a delicious savoury base.
