About the Author
Christina Tosi made her name at Momofuku Milk Bar in New York. She has worked as a pastry chef in the kitchens of New York's Bouley and WD~50, and David Chang's Momofuku Noodle Bar and Ssäm Bar - where she got her big break. Tosi's baking for the staff so impressed Chang that he asked her to run his pastry shop, Momofuku Milk Bar where Tosi and her team create all of the desserts served throughout the six-restaurant Momofuku empire. What makes Tosi unique is the way she uses everyday ingredients such as pretzels, potato crisps, marshmallows, cornflakes, oats and dry milk powder in her recipes. These include creations such as cornflake-infused milk; her renowned 'Crack Pie with its buttery oatmeal cookie crust; 'Compost Cookies' spiked with pretzels, coffee grounds, crisps, among other ingredients; and tall malted chocolate layer cakes stuffed with charred marshmallows.Mad - but also delicious.
