For the herby garlic bread
Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Mix together the butter, garlic and half the flat-leaf parsley, then spread the mix between diagonal cuts in the baguette. Wrap the bread in foil and set to one side.
Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium heat. Fry the onion and bacon for about 5 mins until softened, then add the potato and cook for another 5 mins. Meanwhile, put the garlic bread in the oven and cook for 15 mins, opening the foil for the last 5 mins to brown.
Stir the flour into the bacon and potato, and cook for a couple of mins, then gradually add the milk and stock. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer gently for 10-15 mins until the potato is almost cooked. Add the haddock and sweetcorn to the pan, and simmer for a further 5 mins. Stir the remaining parsley into the chowder and serve alongside the garlic bread.
