Christina Tosi knows how to make an entrance. On March 4th, the head chef and owner of Momofuku's famed Milk BarToronto boasts the cultish chain's first location outside of New York City – will drop by the annual Canadian Restaurant and Foodservices Association as a featured panelist and host a birthday cake truffle demonstration; but leading up, Tosi will rock the city with a series of events, cake giveaways, and unveil new Milk Bar menu treats that will have locals robotically nodding their heads, shaking their hips, and wagging their tongues.

On March 2nd, a sweet combination of musical chairs and free cake – a Milk Bar tradition called the "cake walk" – will be held every hour on the hour from noon to 3pm. This helpful video runs down what that means. Lucky winners will dance away with a dulce de leche cake, new to the menu and featuring "slowly caramelized sweetened condensed milk, dulce de leche, and milk crumbs." On the 3rd, Milk Bar may incite a riot when they hand out free chocolate malt cake truffles (another new menu item), "bite-sized balls of chocolate cake soaked in malted chocolate milk and coated with malted milk crumbs," to the first 100 customers. Christina Tosi should really come to town more often.
