It's hard to believe that Flour is Joanne Chang's first book, because the level of mastery, precision and experience in it make it feel like the work of someone who's been showing new bakers the light and the way for a very long time. --NPR, Ten Best Books of 2010

Wishing Joanne has a great success in her next book and don't forget to add more pictures to it.
The cookbook market has always been inundated with baking books. So what makes Flour stand out from the herd? Clearly written recipes that produce successful results and include a variety of treats that range from a simple peanut butter cookie to more high-falutin' creations such as Hazelnut-Almond Dacquoise. I dare you to open this book and instantly not want to make everything. In fact, I double dog dare you!
I could tell Joanne really spent a lot of time for home bakers and showed a realistic, yummy and foolproof recipes.
She knows what recipes can turn out well and be loved and I think she tried with normal homebaking oven.
I truly respect this cuz some books are just about making money and I can smell that they were quickly written by a someone not by a chef her or himself to make money with nice looking cover. This is the top book among all other fancy pastry books.
Her currant scones and Brioche are to die for.
