"Just as Momofuku was much more than a cookbook, Momofuku Milk Bar, too, will have a compelling narrative story, also written with Peter Meehan, that shares the unlikely beginnings of this quirky bakery's success. A runaway success in fall 2009, Momofuku suffered from just one criticism among reviewers: 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 will have all the recipes for their most addictive desserts, along with ones for savory baked goods that take a page from Dave's Asian-flavored cuisine, such as Kimchi Croissant with Blue Cheese"-- Provided by publisher.

Summary / Annotation
New Classic Recipes submitted by Sara W on August 29, 2015, 9:29pm Christina Tosi is a legend, and her recipes don't compromise - they aren't delicious by accident, so be prepared to go out and buy glucose or at the very least, milk powder, if you want to make her magic happen. It's a really chatty cookbook, which I liked - I'm just about as interested, if not more, in how Milk bar came to be as I am in actually making crack pie on my own. The backstory is great and the camaraderie in the kitchen is palpable in the writing. It's rare that I read every page of a cookbook, but this one I couldn't put down. The recipes are a bit intense for my skillset/level of dedication, but I'll probably give some of the cookies a go. I did buy milk powder.
