No longer the Cinderella ingredient in the kitchen, humble flour steps into the spotlight this month – Italians know how the right flour will enhance your cooking whether they’re from pulses, grains or nuts


Flour is such a versatile ingredient: you can turn it into pastry, bread, pasta, cakes and more with the addition of liquids, fats, eggs or yeast.

All that has changed now, thankfully, with flours of every kind more readily available. And, whether for dietary considerations or just pure delectation, demand is rising.

Here are a few of the most popular choices. Give them a try and see what you think.
