Avid readers of the blog know that BK & I fell in love with the cookies at Momfuku Milk Bar while we were in New York last summer – so, when I saw the Milk Bar pastry chef had a new cookbook coming out AND she would be in Seattle at Book Larder to promote it, I quickly snapped up tickets. Mom & Mar came along too, so we met up for happy hour first at a new spot nearby that Mar recommended, Hunger.
We shared some small plates and enjoyed most everything that arrived. My only disappointment was the fried gnocchi which sound amazing but needed more flavor. The prawn bruschetta was a good bite and I enjoyed my stacked up tower of veggies:
At Book Larder, we were treated to a cup of cereal milk upon arrival as well as a plate of Milk Bar favorites. We chatted around and looked through the new store (go visit!), then listened to the chef tell some stories of how Milk Bar came to be. We got our cookbook signed, stuffed our purses full of more cookies to take home, and headed out full of sugary bliss.
