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,
Garrick Road Industrial Estate,
NW9 6AQ.

nicer toasted

I like this bread - lighter than some sourdoughs but it is delicious toasted with pate or taramasalata.

Rating: 2 star out of 5


Can't go along with the complaints of holes. It's supposed to be full of holes! But this does not in any way resemble a San Francisco style sourdough loaf. The tang is practically non-existent and it's mostly dry.

Rating: 4 star out of 5

Crusty and light

Some of the other reviews have criticised the large holes in this bread but that's part of the raison d'etre of a loaf that has been allowed to prove over a very long period of time. Besides the give-away is the weight vs size which tells you it's going to have a very light interior. I have to say that I very much enjoyed this bread more than other sourdoughs which can be too dry. Buy this for slicing huge chunks to dip in taramasalata or a creamy dip. Try to make jam sandwiches with it and you'll be wearing the jam as it falls through the holes. Different breads for different uses.

Tasty but doesn't stay fresh for long

I love sourdough bread, this was a tasty loaf, but only delivered yesterday and already it's so rock hard I can barely cut it with a bread knife. I need bread that stays edible for more than a day!

Rating: 3 star out of 5

Chewy & best toasted

Somewhat chewy and better toasted. Agree with others - lots of large holes. Expensive too!

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