David Chang is likely the number one chef-people-have-heard-of that doesn’t have a T.V. show. (Probably used to be Eric Ripert, but now he travels and goes fishing and stuff on PBS) Chang’s series of East Village and (now) elsewhere Momofuku series of restaurants are as notorious for their reconceptualizing of fine dining as for a series of breakthrough dishes – those infamous pork buns, akaline noodles swimming in bacon dashi, oysters with kimchi puree, and perhaps the most amazing dessert that everyone knows about but only the Momofuku geniuses thought to make – cereal milk.
Chang’s pastry chef, Christina Tosi, just released her new cookbook, Momofuku Milk Bar, and paid a visit to Conan O’Brian earlier this week, showing the host how to make Lucky Charms infused milk, and then turned it into a Cereal Milk White Russian Milkshake.
Yep, you read that right.
