Give her some milk (and some sugar), and this lady is able to create something magical for both the palate and the eyes. Christina Tosi is a young American patisserie chef who owns a chain of bar-patisseries for true gourmands in the heart of Manhattan.
She’s also the author of a book of original recipes for desserts based on milk, which takes the same name as her chain of stores: Momofuku Milk Bar. In its pages, recipe after recipe describes perhaps the hardest part of cooking: sharing the experience with others. From chocolate chip cookies to yoghurt pies, each dessert is the result of collaboration with Tosi’s staff.
The book is aimed in particular at those who already do a lot of cooking at home and are familiar with those ingredients and little tricks that are passed down from generation to generation, because, as Tosi herself said when launching the book, «I was a home baker before I was anything else».
