ISO 00 flour

Any suggestions? I can probably order it online, but I'd rather go to a local store and buy it. I have a car…

  1. Capone foods, union square, somerville, usually stocks it. Might also have it at their store in North Cambridge on Mass Ave.

      If the North Cambridge store is more convenient for you, just call ahead and they will throw what you need on their van which delivers food from the Union Square shop several times per day.

    2. available at Polcari's Italian market in the North End.. Antimo Caputo brand.

      1. Formaggio usually stocks it.

          1. New Deal Fruit in Revere. Lowest prices on all imported Italian pantry items (00 flours, semolina, olive oils, tomatoes, coffee, hard to find pastas from small Italian pasta producers)

            1. If you feel like a little road trip Tony's Colonial House on Federal Hill in Providence carries it. I believe it's around $4 for a 5 lb bag. And there's lots of other tasty items there.

              1. Salumeria Italiana, in the north end (which is a great place), or Alfredo Aiello in Quincy or Norwell both sell the 1 kg bags of Antimo Caputo.

                1. The Whole Foods at Fresh Pond has King Arthur "Italian-Style" which they claim is a clone of 00. I picked some up but haven't tried it yet.

                  1. Capone has it. Sort of pricey. Over 6 dollars for a 5 pound bag, if I remember correctly. On a side note, I tried it for pizza making (they also have another flour for pasta making) and frankly wasn't blow away by the difference from regular run of the mill stuff. nothing really stood out, in fact my gf said that regular flour produced a better crust. i make a lot of pizza every month and would make the switch despite the cost if i thought it was worth it. i think this is all part of the neopolitian (sp?) craze which is reaching demented status, mainly because most of us aren't making 2 minute pizzas in ovens cranking out 700-800 degrees
