If you happen to take your dessert very seriously, then you'll understand how important today's Friday Fives guest is. As chef and co-owner of Milk Bar, Christina Tosi has changed the world for the better. How many people can you actually say that about? Do you remember what life was like before Cereal Milk Soft Serve existed? We don't either. And frankly, we don't want to.

Christina's baking skills and wild ideas have her on the brink of becoming a household name. She's the new judge on both FOX's MasterChef Jr and MasterChef, a new season of which premieres May 20th. She also just released a new book, Milk Bar Life, in which you'll find all of the awesome desserts mentioned above.

As you'll see below, Christina's selection of restaurants is nothing but the hits. To keep up with the latest, follow her on Instagram @ChristinaTosi and check the blog,
