Product Description

GAIL's San Francisco Sourdough

There's no mistaking our magnificent San Fran Sourdough. Enhanced with yoghurt for a more pronounced flavour, it out-tangs every other loaf we make. Its significant crust hides a soft, white and lacy interior, a natural characteristic of its slow and steady 48-hour rise.

About GAIL's
GAIL's believes in the art of honest breadmaking. We start with just four simple ingredients: flour, water, salt and yeast, and we never add artificial colours or flavours. Instead, we seek out the best ingredients from where they're best, whether it's hand-peeled Bramley apples from Britain, single source unsalted butter from France, or plump juicy olives from Mediterranean groves. All our loaves are made by hand too, so we never need to add the stabilisers and preservatives that are an unavoidable fact of industrialised bread.

Our selection of classic and globally-inspired artisanal breads includes a range of sourdoughs made from 15-year old wild yeast starters. Allowed to rise slowly and naturally, these loaves take 48 hours to make and possess a mature taste and character that a mechanically processed loaf couldn't hope to match.

Product Information

Prepare & Use

This deeply tangy loaf has the power to turn even the most basic topping into a gourmet offering. It's an unbeatable side bread to soups, steaks or pasta and tastes heavenly toasted with a drizzle of honey or a dollop of plum jam.

It was delivered Monday evening but didn't even last til the following day when I wanted to eat it - far too stale by that point. I love sourdough bread and am well aware that they aren't exactly soft and fluffy but this one seemed well past it's best.

No, it's not for sanwiches

But it's great for toast. Lovely with sweet or savoury toppings, but equally so as tangy, tasty toast with butter melting through the random holes. Toasts very crisply, unlike M&S's which stays very chewy.

Great bread

Great taste, perfect crust. If we keep it longer than 2 days and it gets a bit tough I heat the slices lightly in the toaster and it becomes soft again.

Tough dough

I found this bread very tough, and riddled with large holes which made it useless for a sandwich.

Excellent bread

Really delicious bread. Great crust, wonderful flavour, lovely and spongy interior. The only problem is that it's not always available.

Brandy and tabasco give this steak tartare a piquant kick. Use the best quality beef you can find.
