Mooncakes and Milk Bread

Architect-turned-food-blogger Christina Cho (eatchofood.com) has just released her first book, a culinary tour of the best of Chinese bakeries. Mooncakes and Milk Bread: Sweet and Savory Recipes Inspired by Chinese Bakeries (Harper Horizon, 2021) introduces readers to Chinese bakery classics such as pineapple buns, savory and sweet baked buns, cookies and Swiss rolls, while offering uncomplicated interpretations for the modern baker. Cho also entertains with stories about growing up in her family’s Chinese restaurant, revealing a window into a vibrant part of Chinese-American culture. Novices as well as seasoned bakers will appreciate Cho’s advice on how to avoid collapsed steamed buns, how to make the most workable dumpling dough, and how to pleat dumplings just like an Asian grandma.
