Momofuku Milk Bar Cook book

Has anyone purchased the book? Anyone got any comments about it?

  1. Are there any worthy recipes from this book? It seems like most of the negative reviews are about desserts being oversweet and too buttery.

      I think it is one of those books that definitely will not appeal to everybody. Ms Tosi seems to have a very lowbrow American palate, always mentioning how much candy and junk food she eats. I finally bought the book because it was cheap on Amazon and figured there might be a few good ideas, but honestly not many of the recipes appeal to me. I did try the milk crumb, which is ... sweet and milky.

        The cornflake cookies are definitely worth making. I made them last week and everyone loved them! Here is my review from my blog:

        I also just made the crack pie (also on my blog) which went definitely deserves it's name!

          Why did you choose to use bread flour and only 2 cups of the cornflake crunch?

      2. I have it on an ipad and it is the first and last cookbook I will buy electronically. I agree, not many recipes that I will be making - lots of fussiness and combos that don't appeal to me. But, I really love the corn cookies with the powdered dehydrated corn! But that recipe is easily available online. My one electronic experience with cookbooks convinced me that I want a bound paper book that I can easily flip around back and forth.
