Format: Hardcover
Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook is your chance to jump back to your youth when you were raised on Cap'n Crunch and Corn Flakes. In a follow-up to David Chang's best-selling Momofuku Cookbook, his pastry chef, Christina Tosi, presents her most popular recipes including the famed Compost Cookies and Crack Pie. But beware of her overly sweet recipes if you prefer your desserts a bit more subtle and understated.

Momofuku Milk Bar's fame, although relatively new, is well deserved. The story is legendary ' David Chang was serving Hershey Kisses as dessert for his restaurants, and on leave from wd-50, Christina Tosi arrived to assist in dealing with the New York restaurant inspectors. A quick consult turned into a full-time job based on junk food turned nostalgia pastry. Many terms have been used to describe her creations including the New York Times' 'a time capsule of arrested adolescence, an homage to American processed food,' but I prefer to think of them as 'gussied up stuff my mom used to make.'

Momofuku Milk Bar Cookbook comes in at 256 pages with over 100 photographs. Pictures fill most pages and are sure to get your mouth watering although her desserts are not about fancy and frilly, and so they aren't necessarily the most photogenic. The book also contains sections on her preferred ingredients, equipment and techniques. What is most exciting about this book is that Tosi gives us much of her menu, and explains how the menu evolved in those early years.

The evolution of her menu makes sense. Chefs don't have much time so they need to create a handful of knock-out base recipes that can be spun into a number of other recipes. And for this reason alone, Milk Bar is a good read for any aspiring chef or prolific bake sale maven.

Not as good as other cookbooks i have seen, especially other baking cookbooks.
For starters, recipes are very mundane and use alot of 3rd party/ready made ingredients (i.e. cereals, packaged pretzels, candy bars). I like the idea that these recipes are based out of her childhood favorite treats, and it states that there are 10 mother recipes that this cookbook is built on, but majority of the recipes are tacky and are the kinds of things you find on pinterest or buzzfeed (e.g. oreo fudge brownie caramel with pretzels and peanut butter explosions blahblahblah). Overall, i am underwhelmed because i know Christina Tosi is an excellent pastry chef. Honorable mention to the crack pie and corn cookie recipes - ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!

Fascinating book with some great recipes but hard to follow and some ingredients required are just too hard to find.
