I'm seeing an increasing number of recipes calling for wholewheat pastry flour as a sub for white AP flour, but I have yet to see this anywhere that I have looked in the Surrey/Langley/Abbotsford stretch of the Fraser Valley. Anyone have a source?

    Anita's Organic in Chilliwack mills all kinds of flour which they sell at their retail location (in Chilliwack) and various other spots around the lower mainland (Whole Foods, Choices, etc).
    They definately make whole wheat pastry flour. Check their website for other retail locations in your area (they have several sources listed in Surrey, Langley & Abbotsford).

      Thanks so much - there are a lot of retailers around me. Also opened my eyes to a few business that I didn't know existed, like a dairy that has fresh curd every Wednesday and makes their own ice cream.Your link provided a wealth of information.

          I've found the smoothest wholewheat pastry flour is in the bulk section of Whole Foods. When I have bought it packaged at stores, it is not nearly as finely milled. I actually use it for all my recipes that call for white flour and you don't even notice because it is so finely done.

          This recipe for triple chocolate espresso cookies calls for it and was my first foray into the world of WW pastry flour.
