    Do any of the big supermarkets sell '00' flour?

    Banned
    I have tried tescos and sainsburys but no luck (unless extra fine plain flour is as good?).

    I need to make a lot of fresh pasta.

    Thanks.

    Waitrose would be a good bet I think. I remember selling this many years ago in a Deli, I think it was either branded Farina or called Farina.

    Actually I just had a Google and found this: uktv.co.uk/Foo…/1/

    The other alternative is to approach your friendly local Italian restaurant/pizza house and see if they will sell you some. Chances are though their Pizzas will come from Tesco's freezers

    Best of luck

    Thanks v much Hotto.

    Very surprised the big two dont sell it as it is the main ingredient for fresh pasta.

    Did you ask CSI ? It could possibly be on a different section to the flour ?? Maybe on wholefoods or similar ?? Don't know for sure just thinking aloud as it were.

    morrison`s that`s where I obtain my own

    Just had a look on Tesco online and they sell this one:
    Doves Farm Buckwheat Flour 1kg £1.69 a Kilo !!
    Stoneground from naturally gluten & wheat free buckwheat, sometimes known as sarrasin, this flour has a speckled appearance and slightly sweet taste. This 100% buckwheat flour is ideal for pancakes, blini, noodle and pasta making.

    I am making it right no using 50% semolina / 50% plain white (sieving 10 times lol).

    Should be fun - and messy!

    Sainsburys in Basingstoke sell two different sorts of "00" flour, one is in the speciality section which is Molino Spadoni Gran Mugnano

    Packet looks like this http://images.ciao.com/iit/images/products/normal/020/product-621020.jpg

    and they also sell McDougalls Supreme Sauce & Pastry Premium "00" Plain Flour, the packet looks like this http://www.britishsupermarketworldwide.com/acatalog/mcdougalls_oo_flour_1kg.jpg

    Still learning. Been watching far too many cookery shows so thought I'd get off my fat backside and make some decent food rather than watching someone else do it whilst my microwave is on :-D

    mixed results but getting there and pretty good fun too.

    Glad you are having fun, cooking and getting it right takes lots of trial and error, I tend to look up the recipe and of all the different versions I pick the one that most suits my ability and the ingredients I have/most want to use, always follow the recipe to the letter, always found if I take shortcuts it goes hideously wrong!

    When you find a recipe that works email it to yourself, quick way to find it again without trawling through hundred of sites trying to find it!

    Good luck with your future cooking attempts, may they all be successful :thumbsup:

    Cheers.

    I find this BBC site is great as I can find recipes by ingredients and also level of difficulty etc.

    Any good ones can be added to a personal binder on the site. Although I generally print them too and store in a foolscap folder.
