    Unique

    This flour has a unique flavor - honestly I haven't decided how to best use it, but I am intrigued and appreciative! The sourdough bread I made was hearty and good. I am grateful that these varieties are available to us; the quality seems excellent. I'll keep experimenting!

    Love Baking Local!

    Have have purchased many of the different types of flour that BSM mills, including the Rouge de Bordeaux, and I love them all! I use the flour mostly to bake bread and I really can taste the difference when I use this high quality flour. Highly recommend!

    Unbelievable aroma and flavor

    I'm new to bread and pasta making, but based on the reviews alone, I had to splurge and try Rouge de Bordeaux. I was blown away by the smell of sweet/spice even just opening the bag of flour, much less when I baked/cooked with it. It is worth every penny!

    Extraordinary flour

    I've used the 00 flour for bread, sourdough bread, pizza dough, carrot cake, pancakes, and cookies. It develops gluten readily to rise beautifully in the breads and pizza , yet when treated gently it also produces tender pancakes, cake, and cookies. It has a subtle raisiny sweetness and fragrance that works well with both savory and sweet baked goods. I'm now regretting that I only purchased 10 lbs.
