Milk Bar Bakery | NPR – July 3, 2012

This week on Ask Me Another, we welcome Christina Tosi, an award-winning chef and the brains behind Momofuku Milk Bar—the dessert outpost of David Chang’s ramen noodle empire. Tosi is proudly one for pushing the boundaries of normal bakery fare, featuring such confections as “crack pie” (it’s addictive), “cereal milk” (which tastes like a bowl of cornflakes) and “compost cookies” (filled with chocolate chips, coffee grounds or potato chips—sometimes all in the same cookie). Tosi tells host Ophira Eisenberg how she keeps her sweet tooth sharp, and why it is so rewarding to play with one’s food.
