Gail Stephens, founder of Baker and Spice and The Bread Factory - a
small artisan bakery supplying London's top chefs - is the name behind GAIL's, a wonderful cake and bake shop
with branches in Hampstead, St John's Wood, Notting Hill, Battersea,
Queen's Park and Chiswick. When Gail teamed up with Ran Avidan and Tom
Molnar - who quit their management consulting jobs - in 2005, GAIL's
on Hampstead High Street sprang up, bringing us high quality,
chemical-free baked goods. A delightful store on Notting Hill's
fashionable Portobello Road followed in 2006 and the expansion
continues across London.
The result is the antithesis of the plastic wrapped supermarket bought
bread that most of the UK uses to make their sandwiches. Free of
chemicals, preservatives and additives, with GAIL's simple
flour-and-water ingredients you can certainly taste the difference.
The straight-from-the-oven delicacies are beautifully laid out so you
can choose from freshly baked muffins or potato and rosemary
sourdough. Special events have seen their goodies served up at the
Serpentine's summer pavilion and at their annual garden party at Oriel
