A blog review: King Arthur Flour
I stumbled upon King Arthur Flour’s blog recently and immediately fell in love with their site, their recipes and, of course, their flours! They have every kind of flour you can imagine! This is no surprise, considering they have been making flour since the end of the 18th century.
King Arthur Flour was founded in Boston, Massachusetts in 1790 and today is based in Norwich, Vermont. Their products include baking mixes, cookbooks and most importantly, flour.
What is flour exactly? It’s a powder made from cereal grains, seeds or roots. Flour is essential for making bread, a staple food around the world. Flour is also used to make cakes, pastries, pizzas and pastas.
The King Arthur Flour website sells various types of flours for making these breads, cakes, pastries and pastas. You can also find hundreds of amazing recipes. And their recipes are awesome. Many of them have pictures, nutrition facts and baker reviews. Most importantly, the recipes all have clear steps for baking the delicious goods.
Here are some other great things about the King Arthur Flour site:
- Shop: You can shop for dozens of different types of flours. Do you need all-purpose flour? Whole wheat flour? French-style flour? King Arthur Flour has it all.

- Customer service: This website has tech support, live help and a baking hotline. Having great customer service only makes using this site even more enjoyable and satisfying.
- Blog: The blog features hundreds of delicious recipes. I wouldn’t know where to start. You can also learn about sustainable agriculture or learn how to make fabulous homemade yogurt smoothies. The recipe even has you make your own yogurt from scratch!
The King Arthur Flour blog and website together have taught me to appreciate flour a little more than I otherwise would. The main site and the blog are both professional looking and organized, which is great when you want to easily search for a new recipe. And all of their recipes are very descriptive; anyone can bake amazing breads, pizza crusts and pies.
Most importantly, with more than two centuries of experience, King Arthur Flour probably makes some incredible flour. I highly recommend going to their site and shopping for some of their flour. Or check out their blog for some appetizing recipes and helpful tips.
