There are now three Flour locations in the Boston area, and this cookbook by the bakery’s owner/founder reveals how to make some of her scrumptious baked goods at home. There are sections on techniques, equipment, and ingredients, along with “Joanne’s Top 12 Baking Tips.” (Chang wisely explains the “why” along with the “what,” effective for convincing home bakers that yes, the recipe is that way for a reason.) Beginning bakers will probably find some recipes intimidating, but others manageable; Chang includes a little personal story before each recipe, and includes ingredient measurements in both volume and weight. The photos are gorgeous, too.
