I first saw these breads on a stall in the Narbonne market; some were made with green olives, some with black, and some had ham in them they are basically soda bread, quick and easy to make and – with all that olive oil, and all those eggs – quite sumptuous, which cannot be said for most soda bread.

This recipe is based on one from Pierre and Hélène Vialla who farm at Combaillaux in the Hérault, not many kilometres north of Montpellier. It is enough for 2 loaves.
