Flour, Too: Indispensable Recipes for the Cafe's Most Loved Sweets & Savories
Pastry chef Joanne Chang, proprietor of the beloved Boston
, doesn't just make blueberry
muffins—she mixes in other summer berries, like raspberries
and strawberries, adds a splash of vanilla and turns out a delicious
treat for any time of day. For lunch, she creates "gazpacho" out of
green grapes, almonds and cucumbers. Dinner could be an heirloom tomato
salad with feta, pistachios and watermelon or laid-back turkey burgers
with tomato-onion jam. The author's inventive but totally approachable
fare is just the thing for when you want something a little different,
yet still easy and summery.
