Myers+Chang at Home 

Recipes from the Beloved Boston Eatery

by Joanne Chang & Karen Akunowicz

From beloved chef and author Joanne Chang, the first cookbook from her acclaimed Boston restaurant, Myers+Chang

Award-winning and beloved chef Joanne Chang of Boston’s Flour bakery may be best known for her sticky buns, but that’s far from the end of her talents. When Chang married acclaimed restaurateur Christopher Myers, she would make him Taiwanese food for dinner at home every night. The couple soon realized no one was serving food like this in Boston, in a cool but comfortable restaurant environment. Myers+Chang was born and has turned into one of Boston’s most popular restaurants, and will be celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2017, just in time for publication of this long-awaited cookbook. These are recipes to be shared, always bursting with flavor, and anyone can make them at home–Dan Dan Noodle Salad, Triple Pork Mushu Stir-fry, or Grilled Corn with Spicy Sriracha Butter. This is food people crave and will want to make again and again. In addition to the favorite recipes, the photography also perfectly captures the spirit of the restaurant, making this book a keepsake for devoted fans.
