  • About

This bread, like a lot of my food, has a combination of tastes. The sweetness of the plantain and molasses sugar is offset by the heat from the paprika (which, if you want, can be replaced by finely chopped fresh green chilli). This sort of flavour-packed bread is best served with something simple like grilled fish or roast chicken, though as it’s a favourite of mine I’ll eat it with anything. It’s delicious with a very ripe goat’s cheese on top for a late supper.
