PLEASE NOTE: This is a product review and I am not the producer of Findlaters bread. Please do not email me asking about the bread as I am nothing to do with the company. You can no longer buy this bread online, but you can buy identical bread direct from the bakery that produces it: www.wheatfreebakerydirect.co.uk.
Findlaters, a local fine food producer, is now selling some excellent gluten free bread products. Available through a number of Edinburgh stockists, it is worth seeking out.
Including a tiger bloomer, an oat cob loaf, several different rolls, bagels and even a great-sounding cheese bap, the range definitely gives the mass market a run for its money. So far I have tried the rolls and the oat loaf. The oat loaf comes ready sliced and freezes very well, with no adverse effects from thawing out. It tastes good before you toast it and as you can see here, makes very good Eggy Bread!
The rolls are light and tasty and we ate them for a beach picnic. Most importantly, there is virtually no gluing up at the back of the teeth and the bread looks and tastes like ‘normal’.
So for the products I have tried so far, I give them a good thumbs up. I shall try the bagels too, as they would be great for a weekend breakfast.
The stockists in Edinburgh I have come across so far include the Earthy stores (Cannonmills, Causewayside and Portobello (great shops!). Findlaters also sells through 181 Delicatessan in Bruntsfield and Dobbie’s Garden Centre Foodhall in Lasswade,
Give these products a try – they really are very good. However, if you cannot find them, Wheat Free Bakery Direct produces identical products and offers online ordering. Apologies for the rant at the top of this post, but I am getting almost daily enquiries about supplying this bread!
