Christina Tosi

Please Note: Current CDC and Smithsonian COVID-19 guidelines will be followed at the time of the program.

Before she was the host of “MasterChef Junior” and “Bake Squad,” Milk Bar’s Christina Tosi was known for her Compost Cookie, a sweet-and-salty creation that combines chocolate, butterscotch, oats, coffee grounds, pretzels, and potato chips.

In her new book, All About Cookies, Tosi shares more than 100 recipes from and inspired by Milk Bar’s fan favorites. No cookie form is left unturned, from crispies, sandies, and sammies to chewies, bars, and even no-bakes. She remixes an old classic into the marbled chocolate s’more cookie, offers a new flavor duet in blueberry-and-corn bars, and introduces a sure-to-be favorite with the jelly-donut cookie sandwich.

Through dozens of recipes, the book guides users in mixing and matching ideas, flavors, and textures. Whether you’re swapping out peanut butter for marshmallow fluff or adding Milk Bar’s famous Birthday Crumbs to a recipe, Tosi’s guidance is designed to turn both experienced home bakers and novices into cookie wizards.

Join Tosi, in conversation with Becky Krystal, food reporter for The Washington Post, as she discusses her cookie recipes and the inspiration behind them, along with her top tips on how to create your own masterpieces. After the conversation, enjoy samples of Milk Bar’s cookies.
