      Tasty Books: Chef Joanne Chang

      The guest of honor this time is Chef Joanne Chang, owner of four Flour Bakery + Cafes in Boston. She has a degree in applied mathematics and economics from Harvard University and was a pastry chef at Rialto, Payard Patisserie, and Mistral restaurant.

      Chef Chang famously won the sticky bun challenge on the Food Network show Throwdown with Bobby Flay. More recently, she baked a cake to feed 4000 people for Harvard's 350th anniversary.

      The first cookbook, Flour, concentrated on pastries and desserts, while Flour, too highlights the most-requested savory fare from the cafes.

      As we have in the past, we'll pair the cookbook with a prix-fixe dinner, allowing attendees to sample what they might eventually cook at home from the beautifully photographed, clearly written recipes. The meal, prepared by Chef Patrick Mulvaney, will include passed appetizers and a four-course family-style dinner based on the book. 

      Since Chef Chang's cafes serve a wide range of meals along with their award-winning pastries, the four courses for the evening will be breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert.

      Cocktails: 6 p.m.

      Chef talk and dinner: 7 p.m.

      There will be a cash bar or you can BYOB (corkage is $20). Additional copies of Flour and Flour, too will be available for $30 and personalization by the author.
