Flour for baking bread
Where can I buy flour for baking bread? My local Dominicks has all-purpose flour and whole wheat flour, but I am also interested in finding rye flour, bread flour, and whatever else I might be able to experiment with. Also, it would be good to buy in larger quantities. Please let me know if you know of any stores which offer a better selection. I live in Wicker Park, so anyplace near there would be best.
The very best flour is made by King Arthur: http://www.kingarthurflour.com/ The 5# bags are available at Jewel, plus they have wholesale 25# bags. They also have the most varied selection of flours I've ever seen. Whenever I run out and use any other flour to bake, believe it or not, my husband can tell!
King Arthur Flour is the best I have tried, and I bake a decent amount of bread. The Trader Joe's in the burbs carries it as well. I have also obtained some incredible whole wheat flour from the winter farmers market.
LucyD - I haven't seen the 25# bags...where did you find them?
