Can anyone help!I have lived in Brittany for the past twelve years and have made my own bread using French bread flour. For several weeks I have been unable to buy French bread flour in my local supermarkets. Has anyone else had the same experience?  Is there a problem with supplies?Help please I am getting very frustrated

We get our from Doves Farm in the UK; they are great and they only charge £11.00 delivery for up to 30kg - and it's here in 3/4 days.

I find it hard to believe you can't find flour in Brittany.  I have always been faced with a mind numbing selection of flours at supermarkets.  I use a breadmaker and currently use a 60/40 mix of cheap ordinary type 55 and Francine multi-cereal.  For a couple of weeks the Francine has been unavailable but have made do with other brands.

Point Vert - not the first place that springs to mind I agree, but some of the larger stores sell Soezie bread flour and bread mixes.

I use Chabrior Pain Blanc available from Intermarch√©.  Follow instructions on pack but I use 20ml extra water than specified.  I use my longest programme,French Bread, on my Bread Maker and usually get an excellent loaf.

I buy all my bread flour from The Mill at Plouay very reasonable prices and good flour

I found a mill by looking at the address on the bags of a good boulangerie. 

Haven't had to buy from a supermarket since. 

As well as bread flour I  buy type 45 for all my cakes and pasta recipes.
