    Food blogger Kristina Cho ( introduces you to Chinese bakery cooking with fresh, simple interpretations of classic recipes for the modern baker.

    Inside, you’ll find sweet and savory baked buns, steamed buns, Chinese breads, unique cookies, whimsical cakes, juicy dumplings, Chinese breakfast dishes, and drinks. Recipes for steamed BBQ pork buns, pineapple buns with a thick slice of butter, silky smooth milk tea, and chocolate Swiss rolls all make an appearance--because a book about Chinese bakeries wouldn’t be complete without them

    In Mooncakes & Milk Bread, Kristina teaches you to whip up these delicacies like a pro, including how to:

    • Knead dough without a stand mixer
    • Avoid collapsed steamed buns
    • Infuse creams and custards with aromatic tea flavors
    • Mix the most workable dumpling dough
    • Pleat dumplings like an Asian grandma

    This is the first book to exclusively focus on Chinese bakeries and cafés, but it isn’t just for those nostalgic for Chinese bakeshop foods--it’s for all home bakers who want exciting new recipes to add to their repertoires.
