Christina Tosi is born in Ohio but she grows up in Springfield, Virginia. Her father was an economist and her mother was an accountant.
For one year she attended University of Virginia, where she studied electrical engineering and then she spent some time in Florence, Italy where her father is from. When she came back she graduated James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia.
That wasn’t enough for Christina Tosi so she signed in on the pastry arts program on the French Culinary Institute in a Big Apple- New York City.
She started working in Bouley and wd~50.
Christina started working at Momofuku to write food safety plan. David Chang, who owns Momofuku, later hired her as a pastry chef. As it happened, the Momofuku had no desserts, and there Christina found her chance to shine. She founded Momofuku- Milk bar, a first dessert program in Momofuku restaurants.
With David Chang, Christina Tosi has developed a good and sincere business relationship. She realizes that he gave her a great opportunity and she learned from him a lot.
A Momofuku Milk Bar started in 2008. First it started as a desert program where everybody fell in love with Christina Tosi’s homemade cookies and cakes. But innovations didn’t stop there. Christina got to an idea to include her original pasties with desserts too.
Now it is upgraded into a chain of deserts and pastries. Restaurants are located in Las Vegas, Washington DC and they even have one in Toronto, but their baking products are sent all over the world. They are specialized in making wedding cakes by desire of the bride and groom, birthday cakes and delicious decorated cookies. The baking mixture they use is their own.
Some of the specialties in Milk Bar are Crack Pie, Cereal Milk, Compost Cookie, Corn Cookie, Cornflake-Chocolate-Chip-Marshmallow Cookie, Best Freaking Cookie, Perfect 10, Maple, Pecan Coconut, B-day Brekkie Pie, Blueberry & Cream brekkie cup…
Christina Tosi, as a generous pastry cook, didn’t hold the recipes for herself. In 2011 she published her first book named “Momofuku Milk Bar”. The book was consisted off her recipes of the deserts that are made and sold in their restaurants.
Her deserts always have great critics, her first book didn’t go that well. Some reviews said that her cooking wasn’t adjusted for a home kitchen. Many ingredients had to be previously made before they could be used for preparation of the pastry or dessert. Some of the ingredients (like gelatin, glucose, freeze-dried corn…) and they are rarely found in usual house kitchens. They also said that it took a lot of time and effort for just a preparation of the ingredients and many items had to be bought on Amazon.
Never the less, there were also reviews that admired Christina Tosi’s work and people said that they were inspired by Christina’s baking techniques and that her pages made them go crazy in their kitchen.
Also, Lisa Messinger wrote a great review for her first book: “Tosi is a talented new voice you want whispering in your ear as you bake”
So, after reading and receiving all the reviews, in 2015 she wrote another book Milk Bar Life. The book contained recipes that were tasty and more adjusted to house kitchens. Ingredients are not that hard to find and every one with desire to make some of the Milk bar delicious dishes.
“It’s impossible not to be charmed by the chatty Tosi and her hot pink and bubble-letter-filled never-never land…” – a review of Jenny Rosenstrach in the New York Times Book Review.
She was awarded for her work with James Beard Rising Star Chef award, James Beard Outstanding Pastry Chef award, and Crain’s New York Business had put Christina Tosi in their list Top 40 business persons under 40.
