I call for whole wheat pastry flour in many of the recipes I write. It is a wonderful product, my brand is Bob's Red Mill, and I thought it was widely available. Recently I was in Portland, Oregon (where Bob's Red Mill is located, by the way), and could not find it at a couple of supermarkets I searched. So, my question is this, is whole wheat pastry flour available where you live?

Good question, I'll have to check around.
We have several markets with Bob's Red Mill displays that feature a diversity of flours. Soon as I get out I'll take a look and see if the whole wheat pastry flour is included.

I've also noticed regular whole wheat has a tendency to make things go stale more quickly than when I use the ww pastry flour."If you never did, you should. These things are fun, and fun is good."
