Milk Bar Life: Review

Milk Bar Life is a cookbook by Christina Tosi, the owner of Momofuku Milk Bar.  This cookbook is not your average cookbook.  Tosi has filled it with her favorite recipes, from breakfast to dessert, and from retro goodies to innovative newbies.  She has an introduction to each section of the book, and for each individual recipe, personalizing everything and really making it her own.  The book is full of gorgeous pictures, both of the food and the people that are special to Tosi.

Often times when I get new cookbooks I look through them and only end up bookmarking a dozen recipes to actually try, but with this one, it's more like 2/3 of the recipes! I was interested in this book because I had heard of the Momofuku Milk Bar and its' cookies, and while I wish that the cookie section was a bit bigger, I love the innovative cookies that it includes.  She has the classic chocolate chip cookie, and then a molasses-rye cookie, so there are definitely recipes that you won't find anywhere else! I love how many pictures the book has, but wish that they were all directly related to the recipes themselves, instead of the several that are just of her friends and family hanging out.  I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to try something different out in the kitchen, or is intrigued by the idea of the unique recipes!
