Pugliese, Golden Durum Flour and baking supplies in Australia's South East.
I have been going through Peter Reinhearts BBA and there are so many recipes I want to try.
I am having a hard time finding a bakers catalogue to buy the ingredients. I want to make Pugliese but I cant find golden Durum flour or Fancy (or extra fancy) Durum flour.
I want to make it properly and I know it will taste amazing with the durum flour as when I add semolina flour (which is coarser than fancy durum flour) the taste is soooo good.
Do you think that I can substitute semolina fine ground for the fancy durum flour? Or will it spoil the texture?
So, what I was wondering is does anyone from Australia.....particulary the south east (SE QLD, NSW, SA) order from a bakers catalogue or flour/dry goods suppliers.
If not, where do you get your flour?
I use wholemeal wheat or spelt flour. So I am not looking at buying bread flour from woolworths (I've seen 5 kg bags there) but I am tired of paying way too much for 500g of flour at my health food store....
and they dont stock everything I need.
I want to branch out in my bread making, but I cant cause I dont know where to find supplies! I want a peel and a couche and some bannetons or similar........but I have no idea where to start...I have searched online only to find 2 flour suppliers that dont have much range.
I would greatly apprecite any advice or links you may have!
