"Just as Momofuku was much more than a cookbook, Momofuku Milk Bar, too, will have a compelling narrative story, also written with Peter Meehan, that shares the unlikely beginnings of this quirky bakery's success. A runaway success in fall 2009, Momofuku suffered from just one criticism among reviewers: 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 will have all the recipes for their most addictive desserts, along with ones for savory baked goods that take a page from Dave's Asian-flavored cuisine, such as Kimchi Croissant with Blue Cheese"-- Provided by publisher.

It's a lovely book but not for everyone. I enjoy baking (not love it) and many of these recipes have too many steps for my liking. But if you truly love baking, this is probably a great book for you.

I am really enjoying this book, so much so that I bought my own copy. I have made the cornflake milk and several of the cereal crunch recipes. I plan to make a lot more, but I'm finding that even these basic recipes have limitless possibilities and have been simple to make. I think there are some really good simple recipes in here that anyone can make as well as advanced recipes for the seasoned baker. Whatever your level, enjoy!

Not going to lie. This book is not for everyone, especially beginner bakers. At times, you'll say "OMG this is an insane amount of butter" or "Dear Lord, that's a long time to cream". You have to follow the recipes EXACTLY. If it reads "beat for 7 minutes", do it or suffer the consequences.

That said, this book is very seductive and engrossing. Most of the recipes are truly glorious once you've gone through the 10+ steps and hard to find ingredient to make them. For example the Pistachio Cake. Someone at work made this Diva, and it is, by far, the best cake that I've ever had.

I love this cookbook, but it's not for the faint of heart.

The recipes typically involved sub recipes but they are relatively easy to follow and make. So far, I've made the grasshopper pie and blondie pie and both have turned out great.
