Make the Ciabatta Dippers

a) Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.

b) Halve the ciabatta, then chop the ciabatta halves into 1cm wide batons. Place on a baking tray in a single layer. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat well.

c) When the oven is hot, bake the ciabatta dippers on the middle shelf until golden, 8-10 mins, then remove from the oven and set aside.

Make the Rarebit Dip

a) Meanwhile, grate the cheese. Finely chop the chives (use scissors if easier). Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

b) In a medium saucepan, mix together the creme fraiche, garlic, Dijon mustard (add less if you'd prefer), cheese and three quarters of the chives. Season with salt and pepper. 

c) Pop the pan on medium heat and stir until the cheese has melted and the mixture is hot and well combined, 2-3 mins.

Dip, Dip, Hooray

a) Transfer the rarebit dip to your serving bowl, swirl over the onion marmalade, then scatter over the remaining chives.

b) Serve with the ciabatta dippers alongside for dipping and scooping.
