The Wednesday Nov.5th addition of the Denver Post had a very interesting article about a local pizza place that is using real whole wheat to make their dough.

They are using a variety of Edison Wheat developed at the University of Washington. Apparently the U. has a eight acre test plot , growing 40.000 strains of wheat.

They also have a bread lab where cooks are getting together to use this wheat.
