Product Description

Sourdough bread

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.

Product Information



Ideally, store in your Gail's paper bag.
You can freeze the bread for 1 month, but never refrigerate.

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.

Country of Origin



Gail's Bakery,
Unit 12,

Delicious sourdough

Had been put off ordering this before due to reviews and poor experience with another Gails product. Tried it on offer, and it is the best sourdough I've found in a long time. Had it for 3 weeks running and the same every time, very fresh on day of delivery - moist but not crumbly dough, chewy crust, size of holes varies but that's as it should be for handmade bread. A regular on my order now, will try the apple version next! And it makes the best toast ever when it gets a bit dry.

Had ordered this as part of a morning delivery but realised that this must have been packed the day before as it was stale and cold. I often pick this up (fresh and warm!) when shopping in waitrose as my husband loves sourdough and the price is slashed to pennies towards the end of the day to make up for the fact it is no longer fresh so was unimpressed that after paying full price I had to contend with a stale and lifeless loaf! I did end up using it in a Tuscan bread salad where day-old bread is a requirement and it was delicious but it wasn't what I had in mind when ordering.

Absolutely fantastic sourdough

Dry and overpriced

The bread was dry on arrival and when toasted the following day it nearly broke our teeth. This was on offer but I find Gail's loaves generally overpriced. Sainsbury's sourdough is far better and almost half the price. Please, Ocado, find a better range of non sliced speciality bread. It's the one thing I have to pick up elsewhere after shopping with you.

Lovely brown crust with tender, tangy, open crumb. Lovely with houmous or toasted with vegan margarine. Mouth-wateringly sour and flavourful. It lasted well too.

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