Product Description

GAIL's Walnut Rye Sourdough

There are nuts, and then there are walnuts. Rich, creamy and delicious, they're a luxurious complement to this earthy rye bread, which boasts a characterful cracked crust and a soft, almost pink, interior.
Beautiful to behold, exceptional to eat!

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.

Prepare & Use

A touch of sweetness will make the most of this loaf, so add a ripe fig or two to a mound of oozing gorgonzola dolce, or simply enjoy toasted with jam and a cup of frothy coffee.
Its subtle nutty flavour is excellent alongside game, or topped with a slice or two of black forest ham.

Too small and hard

Love the taste of this, but its just too small and hard. Gives the jaws a good workout. Seems we cant put smilies in the text?

Rating: 1 star out of 5

Too Hard

This was too hard and almost impossible to cut. I would not recommend this.

Rock Hard-never again

I usually love all the sourdough loaves that Gails make but this one was terrible. Rock hard, just about able to slice and this was within 12 hours of receiving it. Will not buy again!

Rating: 3 star out of 5

best to buy this directly from Gail's Bakery

The bread is delicious but as the others have said it's very difficult to slice, so in the future I will buy it but from Gail's Bakery directly as they will be able to run it through the slicing machine for me. Generally speaking, this isn't a problem with the other Gail's loaves. Mentioning this in case you are not already familiar with Gail's products, which are generally excellent.
