Hello! I come bearing super exciting news, for me and for everyone who gets to eat the leftovers from this project. This coming Monday, I'll be starting Christina Tosi's creative baking course, and for 1 month I'll be learning straight from the mastermind of MilkBar.
If you haven't heard of MilkBar, you've probably seen some of their most famous desserts on Instagram or TikTok. The New York Times wrote a great article on her and the background of Milkbar, and I highly encourage you give it a read. My last suggestion is to watch the episode of 'Chef's Table' on Netflix, which showcases Christina and the foundation of her partnership with David Chang, the owner of Momofuku.
Okay now really my last suggestion is to try and find a Milkbar product at either Target, Whole Foods or to order from their website. It's really, really, great. I had the pleasure of visiting the flagship store in 2015 when my mom and I created our own bakery tour while in New York on spring break.
My point in writing this is that I'd like to document my experience in the course. It will cover cookies, pies and end with their famous layer cake - but my task will be to develop my own recipe to follow each theme. While I might not share the exact recipes, everything will be photographed and I'd love to walk you through the flavor story for each piece.
See you after part 1 - cookies :)
