Oil, seeds, herbs and flours

You need to choose the bread to enhance the other food. All these breads can all be a main part of a delicious meal: focaccia, Lemon bread, seeded rolls, soda bread, Staffordshire oatcakes.

Focaccia or Bigger focaccia

Easy and quick, focaccia is full of flavour, traditionally olives and rosemary, but parmesan, sea salt flakes, sundried tomatoes, chilli, garlic, peppers are all good. Focaccia dough has a lot of olive oil added in stages. It's important not to add it all at the beginning because this would stop the gluten from developing.

Seeded malt rolls

These are made mainly with malted flour and a little rye flour plus seed.

Soda bread

Soda bread is also quick to make but should be eaten right away either at breakfast or as a mid-afternoon snack on a Sunday. There are as many soda bread recipes as there are kitchens; mine is a wee tinned loaf using oatmeal and wholemeal flours.

Lemon bread

Light lemon scented bread with a lovely yellow crumb. Great with a poached egg. The scent of the lemon zest comes back when you toast this next day.

Staffordshire oatcakes.

These are equally good with savoury or sweet fillings.
