Help from Australia please

Can I ask for help from anyone in Australia, or particularly in Canberra.  My husband and I run a Bed and Breakfast in Edinburgh, Scotland, and we have recently had some guests from Canberra who asked me for the recipe for the Cyril Hitz type brioche I make for breakfast.  They then said what would be the point, as they did not know what type of flour to use - here in Scotland I use Allisons strong white flour.  Can  I ask any of you, what flour you would buy to use for this type of bread, and where would they be able to purchase it easily in Canberra.  Many thanks in advance.  Nici

Hi Nici,

I'm not from Canberra ... up north a bit at Brisbane. A company called Laucke produce a line of bakers flour called 'Wallaby bakers flour' which you can pick up at one of our larger convenience stores called 'Coles'. Its a medium strength flour and I use it a lot with really nice results.

Cheers,
Phil
