Vit its called bread flour, I had an epiphany when my wife brought Canadian Red Spring flour home. The wholemeal (brown) has 15% protein, the unbleached white 14.7%.I used to use and swear by Italian 00 and French 55, 65, now I use Red Spring

Is red part of the description or part of the brand name?

The flour I use for bread is organic, whole wheat (whole grain), hard, spring flour. Yes, it's the Canadian one.

Thanks for the vid links! I love savory pies.

Just FYI, for those trying to bridge the English language barrier , here is a list of American flours and their British equivalents:
  • Cake and pastry flour = soft flour
  • All-purpose flour = plain flour
  • Bread flour = strong flour, hard flour
  • Whole-wheat flour = wholemeal flour

Thank you Bolas, very interesting video, the first one. I'll save the others for later.
I make my pork filling with garlic, dill, 2 cloves which get removed later....no parsley, no bacon.
btw: I have not heard of smokeless bacon. Must ask a local butcher about this.

Since the only seasoning in this first video pork pie is simply salt, onions, parsley, I'm assuming that the smokeless pork must be very very tasty?....or perhaps pork pie lovers just love the pork itself.....?
