Tosi, 2015 winner of the James Beard Award for Outstanding Pastry Chef, has made her mark at the Momofuku Milk Bar shops around NYC (and now Toronto), with her smartly imaginative updates of American home baked goods. Here, in her second book, she merges storytelling and cookbook, along with sweet and savory dishes, providing a window into her personal home cooking. Her food is often unabashedly retro but enlivened by pitch-perfect tweaks: her strawberry refrigerator jam is made with pickled berries; her chili uses curry powder and fresh ginger and is topped with an avocado raita; and her homemade version of Cheez-its includes kimchi for extra kick. This is good-time cooking.
