    Which Flour is the best for white sauce?

    I've never thought of quinua as being hard to find - even in Canada my local specialty shops stocked both the grain and the flour, and certainly down here I'm not lacking. I pay about $1.60 USD for 500g prepackaged bags of flour from the mill about 15 blocks from my house (I do love living in this city!) All quinua is washed before being milled; I can buy unwashed grains at the market, or washed ones, and generally I opt for the washed because I'm a lazy bum. Ecuador is the world's largest supplier of quinua flour, so if it's going to be in specialty markets, it's most likely from here. For whole grains, which I like mixed with wild rice, thrown into soups, and incorporated in to wholegrain breads, they're about $2.00 for 500g prepackaged bags (I have no idea why they're more expensive than the flour, but there you go!) I can get both grains and milled quinua at the bulk markets, but I can't ship bulk bags out of country as they have no sanitary registry. I can ship you a couple of the storebought bags if you're interested in trying it, though. maybe guinua is only available in western countries or not for eastern countries..I am not sure..just that is being hard to find unless get from canada..i love Canada.. weird..i thought flour is supposed to be more expensive than grains..since there is shortage of flour..Thanks..I'm like to try new ingredient to explore world of foods around me.. hee i also can ship you some ingredients which cant found in canada..maybe some chinese sauce or something...just let me know..

    Panaderia Canadiense -Quinoa flour - The first step in preparing unboxed quinoa is to remove the saponins, a process that requires either soaking the grain in water for a few hours, then changing the water and resoaking, or, more simply, rinsing the quinoa in ample running water for several minutes in either a fine strainer or a cheesecloth. Removal of the saponin helps with digestion; the soapy nature of the compound makes it act as a laxative. Most boxed / pre-packaged quinoa, however, has already been pre-rinsed for convenience, and cooking instructions therefore suggest only a brief rinse before cooking, if at all. Troublesome flour..>.> very much like white rice or couscous although the method is about same..somehow i cant use it since im unfamiliar with it..my area dont sell it unless i have to order from Ecuador or Peru..is it expensive?

    I agree with you..for thickening of creamy soup but I'm using egg yolk and cream.Maybe you can try it,seems like everyone using wondra as instant flour.I always sieve sauce before adding anything into it..quite difficult to make it cause of lump.Some time egg yolk or kneaded butter can be replaced for it. Most Chinese cuisine using cornstarch for thicken-ing in last end after placing foods on plate.For western,depends how they do it, like ge-glaze sauce by using red wine before add them into meaty

    Quinua Flour? I never head of it?my area don't have that..i like nutty type for sauce,somehow wheat flour given a smooth sauce without seive-ing and wont get lump easily unless using starch.

    You can say so..it's something about own chef wants to create good delicious food for guests,just like buying gold or diamond for safekeeping..HAha..Brasato al Barolo is very risky dish to cook due of experiencing..some day will make it if i have cash in my pockets or else.. i dont want to burn my a month's salary for it.. HAHA.. By the way? what about cream - based sauce? I used unsalted butter and some handful of herbs and some good italian wine too.. guess.. its same thing like tomatoes-based sauce..sometime i eat it with spaghetti.. finds it hard to swallow due to thicken cream..i make it light and easy to eat by adding egg yolk..

    That reasons why i have to think twice before buying good wine or else i definitely run their flavor in my tomato-based.. is like no difference from adding chicken stock..French Red Wine any of them sure go well with meat or poultry.. Look like most chef using pinot grigo.. but as long it tastes good itailan pasta.. haha.. im not sure which wine i have to settle or commit with one wine for life.. >.> hopefully i can make good pasta ..^^

    Wine in pasta sauce

    I never thought of using anchovies.. but i can tell it will give tomoto-based a mild flavour too.. sometime i used chicken stock for it..i never use red wine in my tomato based...deglaze fried onion and garlic is good.. but somehow not many chef doing that right.. ?

    I see..maybe depend on prices on your country..unlike me.. even cheap and inexpensive such as JACOB'S CREEK - CHARDONNAY costs $20 - $25 a bottle.. >.> no harm to try other wine too.. i have to think twice before buying...
