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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it! Tosi is a fine story teller and the photos just capture the rhythm of the bakery. The ingredients are a little bit out there and different from your typical cookbook but it is what makes the baked product so delicious. I really love the confetti cookies and when I shared them with friends, they're always gone in minutes! The end products are so stunningly simple... So don't go buy that cake from the supermarket, buy this cookbook and bake your own because everything in here is a crowd pleaser!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Authentic and non-snooty This book takes home baking up a couple of notches. Having taken a snooty pastry program and working in the field a while back I can appreciate the originality and unpretentiousness of this book and the recipes. Unlike other baking books which has pedantic recipes, this one wows me! Although Tosi's chocolate chip cookie recipe can be more involved than most, I think it's worth it to impress others when I gift them. The stories are entertaining as well. I've read the first book from Momofuku, This one is such a bonus. This is one book to add to my collection of top favorites.
