Hello..Can anyone please let me know if there is any difference between durum flour or semolina flour? I live in Australia and am finiding it extremely hard to find Durum flour. When I go to a shop and ask for it they say they have it and then I get what I think, is fine ground durum. I dont feel like this would be the right think as it does not have the same consistency as a normal flour. It is more like caster sugar. The other day I saw Semolina Flour which was a silky consistency but I am not sure if it is interchangeable with Durum flour? Can anyone tell me what colour and texture durum flour is and if there is anyone from Australia reading, do you know where we can get it in Oz. wink

I live in Sonoma California (wine country) and had to buy my durum flour at a Nugget market about 35 miles away.  Nugget is sort of upscale, but not quite gourmet.  If you don’t want to mail order your durum, try a store with a good, extensive bulk food department.  But do try to get it….the Pugliese is a delight!
