Harvard Book Store welcomes celebrated chef and author JOANNE CHANG for a discussion of the first cookbook from her acclaimed Boston restaurant, Myers+Chang at Home: Recipes from the Beloved Boston Eatery.

About Myers+Chang at Home

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 limit 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 tenth anniversary in 2017, just in time for publication of this long-awaited cookbook. These recipes, all bursting with flavor, are meant to be shared, and anyone can make them at home—try 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. Paired with the couple's favorite recipes, the photography perfectly captures the spirit of the restaurant, making this book a keepsake for devoted fans.

Praise

"All these recipes are delicious! Every picture makes you salivate. Finally a book on Asian comfort food that’s both decadent and approachable. The dan dan noodles will knock your socks off!" —Padma Lakshmi, host and executive producer of the Emmy Award–winning Top Chef and New York Times best-selling author

"Myers+Chang at Home? I want Myers+Chang in my home, please! This is just full of things I want to cook and eat more of. It’s also written in a tone I love, one that combines the precision of a consummate professional with a slightly anarchic twinkle. This is the way to have fun in the kitchen." —Yotam Ottolenghi

"Here’s a creative book on inspired Chinese cookery that fully captures the ‘no-rules,’ ‘have-fun’ vibe that I find so addictive about their restaurant. More important, without being pedantic or showing off, Joanne and Karen have demonstrated that you really can inspire and motivate the home cook to get in the kitchen, creating the food that I find to be the backbone of the world’s most crave-able and diverse cuisine. The authenticity is there, along with the call for cultural honesty, all shot through the M+C prism. If you love the flavors of China along with a pan-Asian kicker, if you love delicious food laid out in a simple way so that YOU can cook it too, then this is your book." —Andrew Zimmern

"The first time I set foot in Boston’s Myers+Chang, I was hooked. Equal parts kitchen goddesses and industry leaders, Joanne and Karen’s cooking is the kind I’ve always craved; layered and vibrant, smart and casual, and always a step ahead of the curve. Myers+Chang at Home shares their recipes and stories seamlessly, inviting us all to channel their infectious energy and master their inspired Asian creations with ease." —Gail Simmons, food expert, TV host, and author of Talking with My Mouth Full
