"well done" in French, will scour the planet in search of interesting
grains that produce unique and globally inspired flavors.

third-generation miller," says Golper, a three-time Outstanding
Baker nominee by the James Beard Foundation. "It's milled
from an ancient variety of durum. It's like a newfound love."

the grain's bran, germ, and endosperm is skillfully milled into

Bien Cuit's method of small batch mixing ensures bakers give

a beautiful homogeneous flour. The result is a flavorful flour
