Milk Bar is the sister bakery of the Momofuku Restaurant Group, founded by 2012 James Beard Rising Star Chef of the Year & 2015 James Beard Outstanding Pastry Chef award-winner, Christina Tosi. Since its opening in November of 2008, Milk Bar has focused on putting a playfully American, approachable spin on familiar home-style desserts and savory snacks using quality ingredients and locally-sourced dairy. Popular items include cereal milk™ ice cream, compost cookies®, and crack pie®.
Christina Tosi and Milk Bar have been featured in television programs and publications worldwide such as the Today Show, Good Morning America, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Conan, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Vogue, InStyle, Forbes and more. The bakery’s first cookbook, Momouku Milk Bar, includes all the cult favorites from their kitchen. A second cookbook, Milk Bar Life, was released in April 2015 with Clarkson Potter. It highlights the hilariously never too old mentality and fun-loving culture of Milk Bar through sweet and savory recipes, as well as good ol’-fashioned storytelling. Milk Bar makes custom wedding cakes, produces their own line of baking mixes (a limited selection available at Target stores and target.com), and ships baked goods all around the globe. They also offer weekly baking classes at their Williamsburg kitchen, the heart of Milk Bar.
