Flour & Gluten Free Flour
Flour is an ingredient used abundantly in many meals. Whether you use it to thicken gravy and sauce or to bake cookies and bread, flour is an extremely important element that must be present in your pantry. It may sound like an ordinary ingredient, but it is the base ingredient for cakes, pastas, cookies and breads. It is the flour in the baked goods that is responsible for binding the rest of the ingredients together and forming a dough. At Williams-Sonoma, we offer you a variety of flour and gluten free flour options. Our high quality baking ingredients will help you out when you are in the mood for creating baked goods from scratch, whipping up an au ju to glaze your roast beef, making handmade tortillas, coating chicken before frying and much more.
Flour is typically made from wheat, even though it can be milled from a variety of grains. When water is added to the wheat flour, the proteins in it bind together to form gluten. It is this gluten that provides the elasticity to whichever goods you decide to bake. Are you itching to make a pizza at home?
