Flour is more than a key ingredient

I was going to talk about some interesting Halloween books, but then I got distracted by the Globe's article on Flour owner and professional baker Joanne Chang, and have been watching her cook on You Tube ever since. Have you ever watched her cook? She's amazing!

And now, finally, we have her book in stock, Flour: A Baker's Collection of Spectacular Recipes. I've flipped through this book and I cannot wait to begin experimenting with the hundreds of recipes. Chang gives some great cooking techniques that have made her culinary delights a major success in the Boston area. She also shares some helpful tips on how to take care of your tools.

From puddings to Pop-tarts, sticky buns and ice cream, various glazes, eclairs, and so much more, this book is begging to be initiated into your kitchen with streaks of flour and egg white stains across the pages as the recipes become favorites and are used over and over again.

Don't forget to look at our events calendar. Joanne Chang is coming to Booksmith on November 27th (Saturday) at 2pm for a book signing.

Thank you for mentioning this! I'm going to get the book for my mom for her birthday and present it with some pastries from Flour.
