Dessert Visionary Christina Tosi To Be Honored At Cherry Bombe University Ceremony


Pastry chef and Milk Bar founder Christina Tosi single-handedly changed the way we look at dessert. She brought modernity and creativity to the category with the creation of the Compost Cookie and Crack Pie, her elevation of soft serve ice cream, and her bold decision to leave the outside of cakes unfrosted so we could see the inside layers. She’s an empire builder, a champion of women, best-selling author, and an inspiration to countless would-be pastry chefs. Her third book, All About Cake, is out this month, and she was the subject of a recent Chef’s Table documentary.

In recognition of these contributions and achievements, Cherry Bombe University will bestow the honorary Doctor of Desserts degree on Christina at a special ceremony on Friday, Oct. 26th, at the Food and Finance High School in Manhattan. Martha Stewart will also receive an honorary doctorate that evening.

Cherry Bombe University, a weekend of food and finance classes, workshops, and networking, will commence with the Friday night ceremony. Tickets for Friday night are $50 and available at Single-day and student and weekend passes are available for Saturday, Oct. 27th, and Sunday, Oct. 28th. All programming will take place at the Food and Finance High School, a public vocational high school focused on the culinary arts.
