Flour, Too: Indispensable Recipes for the Cafe's Most Loved Sweets & Savories (Hardcover)
As a former Bostonian who frequented Flour Cafe, maybe I'm biased when I say it's home to the greatest sandwiches, but, seriously, this place makes great sandwiches--and now you can, too! Joanne Chang's recipes take simple, wholesome ingredients and make magic. In college, we used to read her cookbooks to each other like bedtime stories; even if we didn't, I'd still dream about her Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake.
Favorite Recipe: Roast Lamb with Tomato Chutney and Rosemary Goat Cheese Sandwich - I have literally walked a mile in the snow for this sandwich. Tender lamb, sweet chutney, and tangy goat cheese. Need I say more?— From Devon D. Staff Picks
