Everyone thinks their grandmother makes the best cookies, but when you are Christina Tosi, the James Beard Award-winning chef from Momofuku Milk Bar, you really know what makes a great baked good.
In our Inspired Recipes series, we talk to chefs about the early influences who made them want to cook and then we learn a recipe based on those influences. Tosi says she grew up surrounded by bakers. Both her grandmothers and her mother were constantly coming up with new treats so by the time Tosi got to college all she wanted to do was bake. And the rest is history!
