Slow-Baked Atlantic Salmon with Tabouli from 'Flour, Too'

There's good news for fish-averse cooks: Joanne Changs recipe for slow-baked salmon in her new cookbook, Flour, Too, is not only easy (and pretty foolproof), but it also keeps that intense salmon smell at bay. The filets are well-coated in olive oil and then cooked in a gentle 300º F oven until just firm to the touch. They stay delicate and buttery, with no stringy flesh in sight. To pair with the rich salmon, Chang whips up a fluffy, lemon-y tabouli salad. It's heavy on the bulgur to make it a more substantial side dish, but the tabouli still has a strong, herbal presence.

Braised Chickpeas and Vegetables with Couscous, Harissa Yogurt, and Soft Eggs from 'Flour, Too'

Couscous is a wonderful pantry staple. It's the fastest pasta (or any starchy grain) I know how to cook, and its fluffy texture and mild flavor pair well with just about anything you throw at it. In Joanne Chang's new cookbook Flour, Too, she steams the pasta with a rainbow of summer vegetables and a couple of cups of slowly braised chickpeas. Not content with this everyday flavor profile, Chang flavors the dish with North African flair. More

Asian Celery, Fennel, and Edamame Salad with Candied Lemon, from 'Flour, Too'

This salad comes from Myers+Chang, her southeast Asian diner co-owned with husband Christopher Myers. Still, the salad's bright dressing and playful mix of vegetables feels right at home with the bakery's staples. It's an easy dish to throw together (once you've candied the lemon to make the dressing, of course), and is pretty enough for a first course at a dinner party. More

Chilled Spanish White Gazpacho from 'Flour, Too'

Perfect for the hot summer months, gazpacho requires little more than a good blender and some patience during its chilling time. But it doesn't take many bowls of the tomato version to grow tired of slurping enriched vegetable juice. Enter white gazpacho. The Spanish blend of almonds and green grapes is an enlivening break from tomato. This recipe, from Joanne Chang's new cookbook Flour, Too, is a prime example—the fruit and nuts combine with crisp English cucumbers, bright cilantro, and a one-two punch of lime juice and sherry vinegar.

Roast Lamb Sandwich with Tomato Chutney and Rosemary Goat Cheese from 'Flour, Too'

Joanne Chang begins her recipe for Flour Bakery's lamb sandwich with a series of quotes from customers, like "I have dreams about your lamb sandwich" and, "I want to marry your lamb sandwich." While I'm pretty sure I'd never attempt to run off with a stack of her sandwiches, I can understand the sentiment: This sandwich is a commitment, but one well worth your time. More

Cook the Book: 'Flour, Too'

Between bites of the undeniably gooey sticky buns, perfect chocolate chip cookies, and majestic Boston cream pies, it's easy to forget that Boston's famed Flour Bakery serves more than just sweets. In fact, during my time living in Beantown, I rarely ventured past the sweets display on my visits to Joanne Chang's citywide outposts. But now that I've gotten my hands on Chang's new cookbook, Flour, Too, I can see all that I was missing. More

Bake the Book: 'Flour,' by Joanne Chang

Many bakers boast degrees from The Culinary Institute of America, the French Culinary Institute, and other storied programs—but I'm willing to wager that Joanne Chang of Boston's Flour Bakery might be the only one with degrees in applied mathematics and economics from Harvard. Her path from post-college management consulting to restaurant kitchens and bakeries was one that took the sort of motivation and drive that you'd expect from a Harvard grad. More
