CHEF & CO-OWNER JOANNE CHANG’S STORY
Before Joanne Chang entered the world of professional cooking, she worked in the world of business professionals as a management consultant. An honors graduate of Harvard College with a degree in Applied Mathematics and Economics, this pastry chef can execute both mathematical and baking formulas with equal ease. Lucky for us, she decided to stick with the culinary arts.
Joanne is the chef and co-owner of Flour Bakery + Café, with nine locations in the Boston area, and a restaurant, Myers + Chang with her husband and business partner Christopher Myers. She was the recipient of the 2016 James Beard Award for Outstanding Baker. She also authored five cookbooks: Flour, Spectacular Recipes from Boston’s Flour Bakery + Cafe; Flour, too: Indispensable Recipes for the Café’s Most Loved Sweets & Savories; Baking with Less Sugar; Myers + Chang at Home; and Pastry Love, a Baker’s Journal of Favorite Recipes.
