A few of us over at Eat Boutique – okay, perhaps all of us! – are in love with Joanne Chang. She’s started several fabulous Boston-area bakeries that showcase, among other delicious goodies, some of the best cinnamon rolls around; they’re so good they were even featured on the Food Network. Joanne and a great crew also run one of our favorite Asian restaurants, Myers + Chang. All this and she’s still had time to thoroughly embrace Twitter, feeding us behind the scenes info on all her restaurants as it all happens. When you feel a local chef has gotten too big, we remember Joanne as the perennial ’boutique’ chef, always making it happen on her own with small-biz spirit and homegrown perspective.
If you love Joanne as much as we do, then you can hear her speak for free this Friday, May 7 at the Museum of Science. Along with Corby Krummer (senior editor for the Atlantic Monthly) and food sustainability expert Helene York, Joanne will be discussing two often-competing loves: our passion for good food vs. our desire to save the planet. Seating is limited but free passes are available at the Museum of Science lobby starting at 5:45pm for the 7pm discussion. Learn more about this worthwhile event, and make sure to tell them that Joanne’s fans at Eat Boutique sent you.
