GAIL’s Kitchen are delighted to be participating in this year’s Soho Food Feast on Sunday 9th June. Last year GAIL’s Bakery had a great time & so the mantle has been passed on; rumour has it we’ll have a mini ice cream sandwich…
This year the event runs over two days, and we’ll be there on Sunday 9th June, along with Barrafina, Quo Vadis & Rochelle Canteen to name but a few. Tickets cost £15 for one day or £20 for both, & are available here.
The Food Feast raises money for Soho Parish School, the only school in Soho. Last year we raised nearly £35,000 for the school – this year we all hope to better it!
We know full well that there’s folks outside of London crying out for great bread – and as local bakeries in the UK have diminished from 18,000 to about 3,500 in the past sixty years, it’s not as easy as it used to be to find a great loaf. With Ocado on our side we’re happy to be able to deliver to any home around the country, and just this week they have added two new loaves to their GAIL’s range. We’re baking plenty more American pumpernickel (chock-full of molasses, seeds, rye flour and a touch of cocoa powder for a chocolatey hint) and our sour cherry & currant sourdough – which we’re making in a tin-shape for Ocado for ease of sandwich making!
It might sound a strange combination but we’re big fans of the sour cherry & currant sourdough with butter and Marmite – give it a shot.
