types of flour brands

hi - has anyone compared bobs red mill flour against king arthur flour?
http://www.bobsredmill.com/unbleached-white-flour.html versus http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/king-arthur-unbleached-all-purpose-flour-5-lb ?
i typically use the bobs red mill flour but noticed that after my no knead bread is baked, it has a funny taste....nothing like store bought bread.  Baked probably twenty loaves and they taste poorly  (basic no knead bread, following instructions to the "T").
 
Cheers

Can you describe the taste? Also, how old is the flour?
 
Have you made the no-knead bread with KA Bread Flour yet?

I use bobs all the time for the oat flour and bran flour to make stuff. Never tried the regular flour. King Arthur, however, is the be all end all for flour (store bought at least). I was never a believer and I always just thought that flour was flour (before I really started baking) but got really deep with it. Buy KA.

I use KA flour (bread and whole wheat) for baking sourdough and no knead with no weird tastes.

Back in the day, my preference was always Heckers, but after moving out of the Northeast (and then, later, moving to Honduras) I could never find it again.

sorry for the late reply.  
 
the flavor tastes:
1. bland
2. burnt flavor maybe?  but the inside is not burnt
3.  the crust tastes funny after cooking in the cast iron pot
4.  fresh smell of bread early in the baking process then goes to a bitter smell

so just wanted to post this Puttanesca sauce. 

Man it is such a great dish. Lovely change of pace from the common sweet sauce. 

 Doesn't look like much But it makes the house smell like the sea and it sure is good.

I'm currently listening to your newest - SCS 032. In my podcast app (Doggcatcher), I have your feed set to keep all episodes. And I just noticed that I had only 31 episodes.

So I checked the episode listings on the website to try to find the missing episode and saw that their is apparently no episode 030!

While that resolved the discrepency between the numbering of the episodes and the number of episodes I have saved, it made me curious:

What happened to episode 030?

Hello one and all, 

 

I have just finished watching the pan seared salmon video on YouTube - thank you Chef Jacob and read the associated show notes.      

I was wondering if you served salmon as a main - what sort of sides and/or  vegetables could I serve it with?  Thank you for your time.   

I see that you used seseme seeds and some herbs that I am unfamiliar with.     

Just thinking about my vegetarian friend who only eats fish, chicken and turkey.  I thought salmon might be a good thing to serve.   

 

Thanking you :-)

So my question is this

 

I have friends who are coming for dinner - and I usually do dumplings with pork mince, however she does not eat pork.  I posted this picture on facebook earlier today, and she asked for the recipe which is :

I have friends coming for dinner in a couple of weeks, and the lady eats vegetarian dishes mainly but she also enjoys chicken and fish dishes.   

Her husband - eats anything and everything.  

What is your favourite chicken or fish dish - something that presents well on the plate.   

It is the end of summer in NZ - so - if you could think about that in your reply.   I would be interested in trying something new.  

She is an accomplished cook - and usually serves many little dishes when they host.   I would be very interested in hearing from you.
