Momofuku Milk Bar by Christina TosiThe 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.
If you are in the LA area Then this is a must!!! It was as delicious as I expected it, definitely one of the best cakes I have ever tried if not the best. The pie was also good, Parked up next to this place so gave it a try.

The chef and founder of Milk Bar, known for several trademarked treats, including Cereal Milk soft-serve and the Compost Cookie, credits her childhood traditions of ice cream splurges and weekly grocery shopping for influencing the offbeat indulgences served at her bakery and dessert shops. A number of items on the menu have gained a cult-like following: a cornflake marshmallow chocolate chip cookie, a confetti layer cake and a gooey butter pie with an oat crust previously known as Crack Pie The name, a nod to the addictive nature of the dessert, was changed to Milk Bar Pie earlier this year amid criticism.
