Last month I received a rather delicious delivery to my office from the team at The Polish Bakery. With their kitchens situated in Wembley, this bakery specialises in some of the best and most exciting Polish bread and sweet baked goods.

The Polish Bakery was founded in 2003 and is the oldest Polish bakery in the UK. They are a traditional company that attaches a great importance to the quality of their bread. Just in the same way they care about their family, they equally take extreme care of their products. I like that.

The bakers use only the best natural ingredients to produce their bread. Their award-winning Master Baker guards his sourdough recipe like a mother bear does its cubs, and the proportions of the other ingredients are closely monitored to produce their finest loaves.

Thanks to the best quality products and the highest standard of production they are able to deliver the best tasting traditional Polish sourdough bread into British hands every single day. The sourdough bread has gained an increasing number of British supporters, who return to it on a daily basis. Being unfamiliar with Polish baking I was excited to give the products I had been sent a go. The goodie bag arrived at the beginning of the week so my team and I decided to incorporate an elevensies “snack time” to enjoy each of the products, starting, of course, with the Vienna Cheesecake.

This cheesecake was extremely enjoyable, with a texture midway between a creamy New York cheesecake and a mousse, though if you didn’t look too closely you’d think it was made from a sponge! This cake was beautifully balanced in creaminess and sweetness, meaning it was difficult to stop yourself from eating the entire thing as the guilty sick feeling never truly arrived! The sponge base with its thin layer of jam was a nice and subtle punchy addition of sweetness.
I was also sent some bread to enjoy.The first of which was the Rye bread with prunes.
I really enjoyed this bread. It was quite dense which meant it actually toasted really nicely. With the small incorporation of the prune which was evenly distributed, it meant that the occasional bite had a nice sweetness to it, and so I found a generous slathering of peanut butter made for a great breakfast.

The Chia Seed bread on the other-hand was a lot lighter, with bigger air pockets which meant it worked nicely both toasted and untoasted. I enjoyed these slices with a smear of ginger preserve for breakfast or cream cheese at lunch, but again the peanut butter made for a great mid-morning snack, too.
I was very pleasantly surprised by the high-quality and great taste of these products and would certainly be keen to enjoy them again. The cheesecake, in particular, is very unique and enjoyable and went down extremely well with my interns and colleagues. All great with a cuppa tea which I can now enjoy in my new Polish Bakery mug which they were also very kind enough to send me. Check out their website and see what takes your fancy.

Thank you so much to Chloe Hutchinson from Lashes of Style who let me use her photos for this post, as all of my products were squished in transit and didn’t make for an attractive photo! Go and check her review out and make sure you follow her on social, too!
