ABOUT THE AUTHOR
A self-taught home cook and baker, Kristina Cho is behind the popular food blog and Instagram account, Eat Cho Food, where she showcases her Asian-inspired recipes to tens of thousands of followers. The success of her blog led her to focus full-time on cooking and recipe development, and she currently teaches hands-on cooking classes and homemade dumpling workshops. Kristina had the idea for Mooncakes and Milk Bread after spending years experimenting with her own versions of recipes inspired by her favorite Chinese café dishes and realizing the lack of existing cookbook options focused specifically on the genre.
ABOUT THE COOKBOOK
The first-ever cookbook to focus exclusively on Chinese bakery cooking, Mooncakes and Milk Bread, is an evocative and long overdue celebration of Chinese baking that brings together personal storytelling with fresh, uncomplicated interpretations of classic recipes for the modern baker.
Mooncakes and Milk Bread features over 80 recipes, including sweet and savory baked buns, steamed buns, Chinese breads, unique cookies, whimsical cakes, juicy dumplings, Chinese breakfast dishes and drinks. Additionally, Kristina showcases easy-to-follow baking techniques via step-by-step photos and illustrations.
Alongside the recipes, Kristina also includes profiles of beloved Chinese cafes across the country, from Fay Da in New York City to Phoenix Bakery in Los Angeles, further bringing to life the stories of Chinese baking in the USA.
