    Cook's tips

    Corn bread freezes beautifully. Separate the slices with greaseproof paper before freezing, so pieces may be defrosted individually, as required. They can be kept frozen for three months.

    Drinks recommendation

    A spicy red from the South of France is a wise choice if you do add chilli to the bread.
