Product Description

GAIL's White Sourdough

This is everything white bread is meant to be. Imagine a time before fluorescent white slices, plastic bags and low fat spreads as you enjoy a thick chunk with a good helping of butter.

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

Lots of holes and arrives moist

I used to love this bread but there seems to be less and less bread and lots more holes. Also, I noticed that when I received it for an evening delivery the bread was a little moist, without the characteristic crust. Ocado immediately refunded but it's disappointing that the quality of this bread seems to be slipping.

Consisted mostly of air holes

Paul Hollywood wouldn't be pleased with this bread and neither were we. It consisted MOSTLY of holes - huge air bubbles - showing the dough was over-proofed. It was very hard to toast - the hole-connecting-bits were too thin and would burn. And impossible to spread something on it - as whatever you wanted to smear on top would fall into the holes.

Rating: 2 star out of 5

Too hard

Like other reviewers I found this way too hard to chew. I had to warm it in the oven for a bit to soften it up.

Pesto Cheese and Ham Toasties

Pesto Cheese and Ham Toasties

This is a great way to make Italian-style toasted sandwiches without the need for a special panini machine. The secret is to get the pan just hot enough, so that by the time the bread has toasted, the middle is melty and delicious. It it's too hot, the bread could burn before the middle is ready, so always keep the heat lower if you are not sure. Pack a punch with Sacla's Fiery Chilli Pesto, or try Sacla' Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto for something extra unctuous.
