    Great flour

    Used the Rouge de Bordeaux whole wheat for a high-hydration loaf. Was delicious. Looking forward to trying on some of my other favorite recipes.

    Outstanding in every way!

    I absolutely love this flour. Bread making is my passion. This has taken it up several notches. I'll be using this exclusively.

    Great for sourdough

    I combined Rouge de Bordeaux with red wheat flour and spelt. It made for a strong dough, with great oven spring and flavor.

    What a taste

    I baked already two sourdough loafs with the flour and the taste and smell is amazing.

    Delicioso Polenta

    Blew my mind. Earthy, rich, almost nutty. Complex in-and-of-itself. Added a little butter, a little parm and romano. Paired with a red-wine rich, slow-cooked stracotta. But forget the rich beef. Everyone talked about the Oaxacan Green Corn Polenta.

    Great texture

    Great addition to Country Boule!

    Haven't taken the class yet. It's next month on Oct 23. Will be happy to fill out a survey then.

    Fantastic all purpose flour!

    I was a little concerned, since I normally buy standard organic baking flour from the grocery store, but this stuff is fantastic! I made the most wonderfully flaky biscuits and can't wait to get into more recipes.
