Hard White Winter Wheat | Variety: Patwin 

Grown organically by Fritz Durst in Capay, CA Torchiette means "little torch" and this unique shape perfectly captures rich tomato sauces or meat ragus. Its ridged surface adds texture to a simple pasta tossed in pesto. We even love it with quality extra virgin olive oil, Parmigiano Reggiano, and fresh ground black pepper.

About Community Grains

Community Grains was founded in 2010 when founder Bob Klein was seeking to source California grown wheat for his restaurant's handmade pasta. Discovering a number of bakers and chefs who were similarly interested, as well as farmers curious about including grains in their rotations, Community Grains began with the mission to help build a local grain economy here in the Bay Area. Along the way we ended up creating a line of beautiful pantry staples that exemplify the Community Grains philosophy: - Delicious Food— We offer flour with great texture, performance and flavor characteristics, challenging common assumptions about whole grain food. - True Whole Grain— All our products include the grain in its entirety and are shelf stable. Our grains are milled without ever separating the germ, bran, and endosperm in accordance with Our Whole Grain Standard. - Transparency and full information— Carving out an alternative local grain economy in part depends transparency and providing full information, so we catalog every batches farm and milling information and use our website to make it available to customers. - Local— All our grains and products are 100% grown in CA and milled on the west coast. We continue to create and maintain relationships between farms, millers, bakers, cooks, expanding our community and sharing knowledge.
