By Neneh Cherry and Andi Oliver

A type of bread made from cornmeal flour. Maize (corn) is a major crop in the US and the southern states in particular use cornmeal (which is the product of ground, dried maize) to make a wide variety of dishes, including cornbread. Cornbread can include various flavourings such as cheese, spring onions or bacon and is usually baked in a rectangular pan and cooked either thin and crisp or thick, light and airy. It’s served with all kinds of dishes, such as deep-fried chicken or bowls of chilli, and can be used as the basis of stuffing for turkey.
