Publisher Comments:

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? The compost cookie, a chunky chocolate-chip cookie studded with crunchy salty pretzels and coffee grounds; the crack pie, a sugary-buttery confection as craveable as the name implies; the cereal milk ice cream, made from everyone's favorite part of a nutritious breakfast — the milk at the bottom of a bowl of cereal; the easy layer 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 the New 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.

Review:

"Tosi, the chef and owner of New York's bakery, Momofuku Milk Bar, has penned the successor to David Chang's Momofuku cookbook. Chock full of inventive desserts that recall childhood favorite sweets — think cereal milk ice cream pie, Fruity Pebbles marshmallow cookies, and candy bar pie — this isn't your traditional dessert book. Tosi's passion for all things sugar-related and her casual tone — 'you plop a sauce onto one side of a serving plate or bowl' — make for a fun and inspiring guide. Bits of memoir include insight into the toughness of the restaurant business, and the story of how the under-30-year-old set up shop and caught the attention of Anderson Cooper with her 'Crack Pi,' an almost addictive oat-cookie crust — filled concoction. Numbered recipe steps and ingredients, equipment, and techniques sections set up home bakers for the adventure that follows in the dishes that are derived from 10 'mother' recipes. A sampling of savory dishes round out this unique title." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Great cookbook for foodies, home baker, but also the hardbodies. Not only is this a great cookbook, it is a great book. The stories that come along with the recipes are wonderful. Christina Tosi took great care in going over the ingredients, tools and techniques as well as why the recipes were written the way they were. The names of the items and flavor/ingredient combination were definitely eye-catching and intriguing. The pictures. Oh, the pictures. On more than one occasion I've purchased cookbooks and tried recipes just because of the pictures. This was one of the reasons why I bought the book. The pictures distracted me enough to look up the recipe itself and make a mental inventory list of what I had at home so I could start making that item as soon as I got home. Some of the recipes were so simple and made me think, "Now, why didn't I think of that????" while others made me feel that I'm better off just buying a plane ticket to NY to buy the gosh darn thing directly from milk bar. But, I'm a hardbody and will eventually try all the recipes.
