Lunch is a daily obsession for us. Our summer menu is a tribute to transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary. It’s a testament to our commitment as bakers, where simplicity takes centre stage. Through the art of food pairing we can craft complementary combinations that create not just a meal, but an experience.
Creating a complete meal
In pursuit of the perfect lunch, we use food pairing to strike a delicate balance of flavours and textures. Because a truly satisfying and nutritionally complete meal goes beyond the individual components—it’s about the harmonious interplay of ingredients that together transform it into something altogether more special.
At GAIL’s, we offer an array of items that you can bring together to build a satisfying and complete lunch meal. Pair your favourite sandwich with a side salad and your choice of crisps or a refreshing piece of seasonal fruit, sourced by Natoora. The intricate interplay of the soft, the crunchy, the crisp, makes this a favourite summer meal of complete foods that will leave you feeling nourished and fulfilled.
Food pairing at GAIL’s
Lunch should be an experience, not just a meal. Craft something extraordinary by pairing complementary flavours and textures from our menu. These are just some of our favourite menu combinations that showcase the art of ingredient-pairing, and come together to form a nutritionally complete meal:
- For meat eaters, indulge in the delicate flavours of our Mortadella and Ricotta Sandwich. Pair it with our vibrant Summer Pepper Slaw, dressed in a creamy miso almond dressing, and for a complete lunch meal, add a satisfying crunch with a bag of Two Farmers Hereford Hop Cheese & Onion crisps. There is also our Chicken Parmesan Sandwich which is the perfect match for our Summer Pepper Slaw Salad and a bag of Two Farmers Lightly Salted crisps.
- For pescatarians we recommend pairing our Smoked Salmon Bagel with Courgette and Muhammara Salad and Two Farmers Woodland Mushroom & Wild Garlic crisps for a complete meal.
- Vegetarians can enjoy our Heritage Tomato Bagel, filled with juicy tomatoes and homemade pesto, with our vibrant Courgette and Muhammara Salad and Two Farmers Woodland Mushroom & Wild Garlic crisps. The fresh flavours of the bagel, the tangy zest of the salad and the earthiness of the crisps blend seamlessly to make a deliciously satisfying lunch. These are flavours that are very happy together.
