Product Description

GAIL's Tiger Top Pain De Mie

Each of our Tiger Top loaves has its own unique and magnificent mottled coat resulting from a tasty glaze of rice flour, olive oil and sugar that naturally cracks as the loaf rises. Enriched with milk and butter, this Pain de Mie style bread is soft, easy to eat and ever so slightly sweet.

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





Ideally, store in your GAIL's paper bag. You can freeze the bread, but never refrigerate.


Heavenly with a café au lait on a slow Sunday morning, our Tiger Top's sweetness can also be paired with foie gras or smoked salmon.
Children adore it smothered in chocolate spread, jam or lemon curd, while a few stale slices will make a fine bread and butter, or summer pudding.

delicious pain de mie

the whole family loves this loaf - I slice it as soon as it arrives and freeze 2 thirds. the kids love it fresh on the first day, then use the frozen slices, toast it and lather with butter and jam over the week. The perfect breakfast loaf! a welcome reprieve from brioche.

Too sweet, very average supermarket quality

Standard supermarket tiger loaf tastes better than this

Too sweet,

it should be classified as a cake.

Not for me

I bought this loaf as it looks so tasty on the photograph. I was very disappointed. I agree with the review below - it tastes very sweet and has a dense texture. It's also very flat so sandwiches or toast end up being "all crust" - perfect for me but not ideal for my kids. I won't be buying again - back to visiting the local baker.

Rating: 2 star out of 5


Oddly sweet, oddly textured. Reminded me somewhat of a dense and dry sponge cake a few days past it's best. One to be avoided.
