Arva Flour

Last weekend was my sister-in-laws graduation. We had a jolly good time which included dinner at my brother-in-laws apartment. While I was there, he gave me a mostly full bag of flour.

Odd? Not really - this flour is from the Arva flour Mills in Arva (which I think is near or in London). Tim said the flour was really good and told me to take the bag. Unbleached hard wheat flour. I used it tonight for the first time. I made pizza.

Oh.
My.
Goodness.

It was simply the best pizza crust I have ever made. Bar none. It was flavorful and crispy and chewy. I ate until I couldn't eat any more.

So the next time I'm in London I'm going to Arva Flour Mills and I going to stock up on flour. Hard and soft and maybe some semolina. I can hardly wait.

(Arva has/had a website, but it looks like they forgot to renew the domain.)

Arva flour mill is in Arva (big surprise) which is just north of London. Richmond St & Medway Rd.
