Milk Bar Life - Christina Tosi

This is a great cookbook for beginners and for those who want a taste of home. The ingredients are simple everyday supermarket items, and the recipes are very straightforward. There are many items that are easy to prepare after you come home from a long day at work, while there are also some more involved dishes that are fun to make with family on the weekends. Tosi mostly includes recipes that she grew up with, and the stories she shares with each recipe are really something special. This book is a long way off from the complex recipes you would expect from her time on Master Chef, but it is nice to see such a fun and easy cookbook from a renowned chef.
