Christina Tosi was commissioned by David Chang, the owner of Momofuku Milk Bar, to develop safety regulations according to the instructions of the New York City Food Department. After writing a brilliant piece, Chang was satisfied with her work and decided to offer her a position as the head of the confectionery department at Momofuku Milk Bar.
