where to buy Italian Double 00 flour?
I live in downtown brooklyn and wondering where to find double 00 flour for pasta making.
Preferably a location in Brooklyn, any neighborhood.
I think they carry it at caputo's on court st. not the bakery but the one further down court with the homemade mozz and the cold cuts. There's probably a cheaper place (worth looking in mastellone's on the corner of degraw and court as well) but that's the only place i'm fairly sure they have it.
Mastellone Italian Deli
303 Court St, Brooklyn, NY 11231
Caputo's Fine Foods
460 Court St, Brooklyn, NY 11231
Did you use it to make pasta? How did it turn out? Was it a noticeable difference? I have used Bob's Red Mill semolina to make pasta, which was good, but no matter what I do the pasta ends up with a bit of a grainy texture (owing I guess to the coarser nature of the flour to begin with) which works well for some dishes, but I want to try something more delicate, especially to do a ravioli...but I don't want to use all purpose flour and lose the springiness of semolina.
