Mash the butter in a bowl until very soft, then stir in the garlic, oregano, parsley and some salt and pepper. Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4.
Cut the bread into 2-3cm slices but don’t go all the way through, keep the base intact. Spread the garlic butter into the gaps with a knife, making sure each slice gets a decent spread of butter – you want about 1 heaped tsp in each slice. Then spread any excess butter over the top of the baguette.
Wrap the bread in foil, put on a baking tray and transfer to the oven. Cook for 15 minutes, then loosen the foil to expose the top of the bread. Bake for a further 5-10 minutes or until the top crisps up and turns golden brown. Remove from the foil, and pour any escaped melted butter in the foil over the bread before serving.
