Recently we bought a pack of gluten free brioche from Lifestyle, and found it to be inedible, so I binned it. Later, having been prompted by a similar message on the Message Board, I contacted Lifestyle to comment on this.
Very impressively, I received a personal e-mail within hours asking for more details, and a replacement pack within days. Turned out that the first pack hadn’t been proved for long enough, and so the resultant brioche was unsuccessful. The replacement pack was much better – much more what I had expected the first time.
