CANARY SQ.—A Jamaica Plain chef and bestselling cookbook author was injured April 6 when her bicycle hit a car door at Centre and Moraine streets.

Didi Emmons said she spent a night in the hospital with a concussion after the accident in a post on her Facebook page. She noted that she fell in front of an MBTA bus that stopped before hitting her.

“It has spun a whole new spin on my existence,” she wrote. Emmons did not respond to a Gazette interview request.

Emmons is known for establishing Roxbury’s Haley House Bakery Café and writing the 1997 bestseller “Vegetarian Planet.” She promoted her latest book, “Wild Flavors,” at a dinner event last fall at Tres Gatos, which stands near the bike accident scene.
