Tempe Man Revives Heritage Grains and Milling in Tempe - A wonderful story
In yesterdays Arizona Republic there was a great story about a Tempe man who has revived growing heritage AZ grain, milling them and selling the the flour to the best Pizza maker in the country, Chris Bianco owner and chef at Bianco's and other local chefs and bread makers whiloe reviving the Haden Flour Mill name that gave Tempe's main drag its name - Mill Avenue. Who knew?
What a great story and labor of love Mr Zimmerman has achieved!!! Here is the link. I'm going to get the Indian Sonoran White flour or seed. Oddly some of our yearly 300,000 tons od Desert Durum is sold to Italian pasta makers because it is prized for its gluten strength and yellow color.
