Feedback From - Christina Tosi
October 08 2014

When I have a hankering for something sweet and off the wall, I enjoy treats from Momofuku Milk Bar. Today, we are catching up with its mad scientist, Christina Tosi. (photo credit: Gabi Porter)


What are you best known for?
Being a crazy dog lady. And Cereal Milk Soft Serve/ Crack Pie/ Compost Cookies/ B’Day Truffles…. I suppose it depends on who you ask.

What day of the week are you telling me about and in which city?
Summer Tuesday in NYC

What time did you wake up and tell me about the first 5 minutes?
6:45am. I cooed “good morning” to my 15 year old Rottweiler-German Shepard, Bernadette. I gave her a giant bear hug and we walk upstairs and out into the backyard. She “explored” a bit while I watered the plants. This is our normal routine. We went inside, I fed her breakfast and made myself a cup of coffee…

Which 3 songs would best fit as a soundtrack on that day?
Sumercamp (The Infamous Stringdusters)
Everyone (Cat Stevens)
Heart of Gold (Neil Young)

Most memorable things you put in your mouth?
Tomato and Mayo Sandwich on Sourdough, salt and pepper
A glass of Rose

Who did you share it with?
My sister

One thing you wish you could change about that day?
That it would repeat. Every Tuesday. Forever!

What is your most significant food ritual, which you missed?
Morning Coffee. Strong, sweet and creamy. I’m a mess when I try to tell the universe I can make it through a day without it.

What shoes did you wear and why?
Blue embroidered moccasins. Because they’re fun! And feel like hose shoes!

Who committed your ultimate food pet peeve, and what was it?
I’m pretty open minded about food and how people eat it. It never happens at my table (because I bat clean up) but leaving a little as a bite of dessert on a plate is my only NO NO.

What promise did you break?
That I would stop eating ice cream in bed. I can accomplish anything I put my mind to, but I really, really, really love my ice cream in bed.

One thing you did to build your dream?
I moved to NYC, sight unseen, no job, no place to live, I knew one person in the entire city. I kept my head down and never wondered, worried or considered failure. It all made sense in my head, and I knew it would all make sense in life.

What time and in which city did you go to sleep?
Washington DC, 1 AM (had to drive my sister home!)
Feedback From - Nichola Fletcher

I was recently given an awesome cookbook on one of my favourite subjects: Meat. So I had a chance to get a quick look into a day in the life of its prestigious author, Nichola Fletcher (MBE), author of The Meat Cookbook.

What are you best known for?
Venison (that's what I got my MBE for) - anything and everything to dowith it; the more the merrier. And by extension, all meat and game, ofcourse. But I really love vegetables too and grow heaps in my garden. Nobody ever asks me to write about those, though, at least not yet.

What shoes did you wear today and why?
A pair of bright red Joules plimsolls with thick dark blue laces because they are cheerful. Then I changed into one of my many pairs of hideously un-cool plastic clogs because they are so comfy. I have very broad feet.

What is one thing you did today to help build your dream?
I bent backwards on a ladder clipping chicken wire to the pergola in our new garden, sorry, paradise so the scented roses can clamber over it.

What is your most significant food ritual, which you missed?
My own-blended tea at just the right temperature. Why would I ever miss this?
