Chinese philosophy has given the world the concept of yin-yang; opposing but complimentary forces. Joanne Chang's latest cookbook demonstrates this with Flour, Too. It's the yin to her yang (Flour).
published by Chronicle Books, 2013, $35 (US)
Joanne's first cookbook concentrated on the sweet side of her baking business while the follow-up focuses on the savory.
So often we think of bakeries as repositories of all things sweet. It's refreshing when a bakery can successfully show off its savory side as Flour has done in Boston (US). Sandwiches, soups and salad recipes showcase the author's dedication to zingy flavors and incredible freshness.
Recipes to help you discover the savory side of life include:
- Flour's Famous Egg Sandwich
- Breakfast Pizzas
- Smoky Tomato and Potato Soup
- Chipotle Chicken and Black Bean Soup
- Roast Beef with Horseradish Mayo, Crispy Onions, and Tomato
- Warm Quinoa Salad with Roasted Autumn Vegetables and Ginger-Scallion Dressing
- Roasted Pork Loin with Chive Spaetzle
- Best Boston Cream Pie (of course there had to be something sweet included)
