This Is Flour Bakery

Out of the oven

“Make life sweeter… eat dessert first.” This is the motto of Joanne Chang, pastry chef/owner of Flour Bakery in Boston. She has written a new book about her favorite dessert recipes. Working with Joanne and her staff was a breeze. And the fringe benefits were SWEET! I was fed sample treats all day during the shoot. The book is called “Flour” and this is her story.

Sweet Sticky Buns

Flour Bakery is well known for their famous Sticky Buns. Jo’s recipe beat out TV Chef Bobby Flay in a “Throw Down.”


Are the homemade Oreo cookies ready?

I returned to Flour Bakery to shoot a few extra scenes for the film. These scenes show Joanne baking her favorite treat: the pain aux raisins brioche. My reward for coming back? A fresh, warm brioche filled with plump raisins and drizzled with sugary creamy icing. Take a look at the glee on Jo’s face as she bites into one!


Taste test!

    We have eaten at all three Flour Bakery locations in Boston multiple times and also Meyers and Chang – everything jB touches turns to gold – or at least mouthwatering deliciousness! I have made the Midnight Chocolate Cake with Milk Chocolate Buttercream several times and it is literally the best cake we (my family and I) have ever eaten (and we are dessert fiends – always looking for the best of everything!) If you are in Boston – go to these bakeries, if you aren’t – buy the book because the recipes are very true to the bakery items. With JB Chang you cannot go wrong!!!

  2. You are correct Denise. Everything at Flour is fresh and delicious!
