comment What Old World Europe countries (apart from Germany and Italy) have their own unique pasta traditions?
Turkish 'yufka' is the material that borek and baklava are made out of. Like the Turkish version of phyllo dough. I don't know if you would call that a pasta but I wouldn't call it bread.

@rumtscho- I'm not putting an answer because it would have been what you just said. This should be an answer not a comment.

comment Are there substantial benefits to grinding your own flour?
@Sean- I forgot the exact price and went with what I found on Amazon. Thanks for the correction. From King Arthur's web site a 5# bags is about $5.00. Are grocery stores really that much less? kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/…

comment how do you get sushi rice to not stick to your hands?
@TFD- A clean wet cloth is not unhygienic. The tap would be a pain because I have to do it constantly- every second roll at least.

comment Why does dough break when kneading, and how to prevent/ameliorate it?
@Michael- I agree it's hard to add water if you are kneading by hand. If you are using a mixer it is much easier it just takes a little bit of time to work in the water and you should have a splash guard for the bowl.
