about this item
The highly anticipated complement to the New York Times bestselling Momofuku cookbook, Momofuku Milk Bar reveals the recipes for the innovative, addictive cookies, pies, cakes, ice creams, and more from the wildly popular bakery.A runaway success, the Momofuku cookbook suffered from just one criticism among reviewers and fans: where were Christina Tosi’s fantastic desserts? Thecompost cookie, a chunky chocolate-chip cookie studded with crunchy salty pretzels and coffee grounds; thecrack pie, a sugary-buttery confection as craveable as the name implies; thecereal milk ice cream, made from everyone’s favorite part of a nutritious breakfast—the milk at the bottom of a bowl of cereal; the easylayer cakes that forgo fancy frosting in favor of unfinished edges that hint at the yumminess inside.Momofuku Milk Bar finally shares the recipes for these now-legendary riffs on childhood flavors and down-home classics—all essentially derived from ten mother recipes—along with the compelling narrative of the unlikely beginnings of this quirky bakery’s success. It all started one day when Momofuku founder David Chang asked Christina to make a dessert for dinner that night. Just like that, the pastry program at Momofuku began, and Christina’s playful desserts helped the restaurants earn praise from theNew York Times and the Michelin Guide and led to the opening of Milk Bar, which now draws fans from around the country and the world.With all the recipes for the bakery’s most beloved desserts—along with ones for savory baked goods that take a page from Chang’s Asian-flavored cuisine, such as Kimchi Croissants with Blue Cheese—and 100 color photographs,Momofuku Milk Bar makes baking irresistible off-beat treats at home both foolproof and fun.

I love this cookbook. The end result is a high end gourmet bakery item that is delicious. The recipes do take time to make, and it took a little bit of running around time to find some of the ingredients, but it was well worth it.see moreof the reviewer's review
