Flour: A Baker's Collection of Spectacular Recipes
Every day 1,500 Bostonians can't resist buying sweet, simple treats such as Homemade Pop-Tarts, from an alumna of Harvard with a degree in economics. From Brioche au Chocolat and Lemon Raspberry Cake to perfect croissants, Flour Bakery-owner Joanne Chang's repertoire of baked goods is deep and satisfying. While at Harvard she discovered that nothing made her happier than baking cookies leading her on a path that eventually resulted in a sticky bun triumph over Bobby Flay on the Food Network's Throwdown. Almost 150 Flour recipes such as Milky Way Tart and Dried Fruit Focaccia are included, plus Joanne's essential baking tips, making this mouthwatering collection an accessible, instant classic cookbook for the home baker.

Our son's girlfriend, Ashley, gave me this book for Christmas and I just have to tell you how terrific it is !! It is so much fun to read - yes, a fun-to-read cookbook!! Joanne Chang has a fantastic way of describing the recipes and while she writes in a fun, whimsical way, her recipes are very detailed, which makes it possible for a true novice (me) to create beautiful and delicious breads and pastries. Because of this amazingly fun book, I have baked the very best banana bread I have ever made and my Brioche was so beautiful and delicious I almost cried with delight. I hope you enjoy it just as much as I do and, Thanks, Ashley !!!!!!!!
