Meet James Beard Award-winning author Kristina Cho. Her cookbook, Mooncakes & Milk Bread, teaches readers how to recreate cafe delights like pineapple buns and almond cookies, introducing American audiences to the flavors and techniques of Chinese-style baking. 


Cho is a cookbook author, recipe developer, food stylist and photographer. She grew up in her family's Chinese restaurant, where big family dinners were the norm and she was spoiled with the best egg rolls and char siu being a quick "Hey, Goong Goong!" away. Cho studied Architecture at the University of Cincinnati, where she realized that cooking and baking in between building models and staying up all night was my happy place. She now lives in the Bay Area and dedicates her days to cooking, writing, photo taking and doing endless dishes. Cho's website Eat Cho Food is a sunny corner of the internet that shares stories, reflections and seriously delicious recipes.
