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.
Christina's "perfect for" picks
"High energy, fast paced and cramped, griddle corn pockets stuffed with shredded meats, cheese and veggies - this Venezuelan love letter is a must."
"One of the best burger joints in NYC, this Midwest-inspired concrete shakes and roadside burger joint is perfect for lunch."
"Serving Sunday brunch from 12pm-8pm is a dream come true for any Sunday, whether you're an early bird, or you got yourself into trouble the night before! The Eggs Benedict sandwich and 5 Bloody Mary renditions will soothe your brunch cravings any time of day."
"A cuddle in, saddle up Carroll Gardens German-American rustic joint. Best place to bring the parents, and saddle up with a pretzel, stein and steak."
"They have the best late night nachos!"
"From seafood plateaus to French onion soup, this classic NYC brasserie is the perfect place to camp out, people watch, and dine all day."
