Author Hannah Hart in conversation with Rosie Schaap (Drinking with Men, "Drinks" columnist for New York Times Magazine).
From Hannah Hart, creator of the hugely popular YouTube series “My Drunk Kitchen,” comes MY DRUNK KITCHEN: A Guide to Eating, Drinking, and Going with Your Gut, a hilarious, fully illustrated, “cookbook” filled with recipes to make and enjoy between drinks—and more than a few valuable life lessons too.
One day, sad cubicle dweller and otherwise bored New York transplant Hannah Hart decided, as a joke, to make a fake cooking show for her friend back in California. She turned on the camera, pulled out some bread and cheese, and then, as one does, started drinking. (Doesn’t everyone cook with a spoon in one hand and a glass full of wine in the other? Or bottle?) The video went viral and an online sensation was born.
My Drunk Kitchen includes recipes, stories, full color photos, and drawings to inspire your own culinary adventures in tipsy cooking. It is also a showcase for Hannah Hart’s great comedic voice. Hannah offers key drink recommendations, cooking tips (like, remember to turn the oven off when you go to bed) and shares recipes such as:
• Nachos for Juan (Because sometimes everyone at the party is a jerk and you need to eat a plate of cheese and chips alone in a corner.)
• Homemade Alcoholic Otter Pops
• Better Butter Cookies (involves a lot of butter and some flat PBR)
• Five meals to eat while standing over the sink
• Perseverance Pie (because baking is hard and involves math and science)
This is a book for anyone who believes they have what it takes to make a soufflé for the holiday party and show up the person who apparently has nothing better to do than bake things from scratch. It also recommends the drink you’ll need to accompany any endeavor of this magnitude. So, My Drunk Kitchen may not be your go-to guide for your next dinner party…but it will make you laugh so who cares?
