Re: Pizza flour?

How does fermented pizza beer taste, anyway? ;-) Haha! :mrgreen: Well, it tastes like... pizza :mrgreen: I enjoy fermenting my dough, and I do taste a difference, depending on how long the dough ferments. The dough is slacker (easier to work with), more digestible, and doesn't taste like bread. How...

Re: Pizza flour?

I have tried plain flour. However, the issue isn't so much that it is "pizza flour" or "bread flour" or whatnot, but rather the strength of the flour. Usually, "pizza" flour is stronger, because it can stand longer fermentation times (think 48+ hours), which is why it i...

Re: Where to buy ingredients (all cuisines)

I'd have to agree about the semolina, it's a shame that it is so hard to find. People look at me like I am mad when I tell them that I am looking for semolina to make pasta :mrgreen: A few more places to look: - Garaje Gourmet: Aristides Aljovín 421, Miraflores (near the Marriott Hotel on Larco); - ...

Re: Pizza flour?

Hi Bobby,
Firstly, thank you for your answer. I suppose you mean the "Riscossa per Pizza 00" flour: it is the one I use at the moment, lack of a better alternative. :(
I've tried the "Italian" shops but no luck thus far. I think I'll go ahead and ask around at pizzerias.

Pizza flour?

Hi all,
I've been around most bakeries and shops in town, but I haven't been able to find good pizza caliber flour (read: Caputo, Manitoba, Divella). Any idea where I could find some? Or do I have to import/ bring a few kilos back from my next trip abroad :( :( ?

Re: Where to buy ingredients (all cuisines)

Hi, As has been mentioned, you can try: - DeliFrance - Barranco, Miraflores, Monterrico; - Il Pastificio - Surco, Miraflores, La Molina... - La Sanahoria (small shop - look them up on Facebook) - San Isidro; - Sometimes the "Mercados biológicos" have some pretty random and surprising stuff...

Re: Burgers! (split from cost of living thread)

I'd say Fridays and Juicy Lucy probably have the better burgers - however, they are quite expensive. I meant to post here because there are other places around town serving pretty good burgers, and not as expensive - a little more discrete. For instance, Lima Sabrosa is a great place: good burger, f...

Re: Where to find some ingredients - cream, semolina

Hi, I am assuming you mean cream, as in chantilly, perhaps? That I haven't found; however, typical cream is crema de leche , which works pretty much as any cream I've found in europe, and can be found in Wong, Pza Vea... About the semolina, I myself haven't been able to find any. I have asked around...
