Pastry Love: A Sweet Morning with Joanne Chang

December 14, 10am - 12pm

Spend a sweet Saturday morning in a conversation with Joanne Chang, James Beard award-winning baker and owner of eight beloved Flour bakeries in Boston. Hear her story, get a signed copy of Pastry Love, and enjoy pastries from her collection of recipes in CCAE’s Spiegel Auditorium. Some samples of sweet bites and pastries featured in Joanne’s Pastry Love cookbook will be served during a reception and book-signing immediately after the talk.

A copy of Pastry Love is included in the tuition – just in time for the holidays. A must-have baking bible is a perfect gift for foodies and sweet lovers. Additional copies of Pastry Love will be available for purchase at this event.
