Review

Milton Crawford was born somewhere north of the Zambezi and west of the Rift valley in a small town in the middle of Africa. He has travelled the world in search of good liquor and in an attempt to outrun the hangovers that seem to follow him wherever he goes. He is an author and journalist, and in keeping with the most honourable traditions of the writing profession, a drinker of distinction. His previous books have been published under a more sober alias. --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

I'm not going to lie -- and all of you bingers out there may well agree -- I had more fun lying in bed hungover reading this cookbook than I ever would actually TRYING to follow one of the recipes "the morning after." To be honest, it's the first cookbook I've ever actually read and not just turned to the recipe I'm planning on trying. It's insightful and thoughtful, AND I found myself giggling at times -- even when a laugh could cause a headache to go from "mild" to "splitting."

Now I'll just have to try the food...

I bought this cookbook as a gift, and it went over really well. The book was really not what I expected though. The book has a series of quizzed to find out "what kind of hangover you have" and all the recipes are extremely complicated. It is a dense book, and when I paged through it after a night of drinking the recipes kind of turned my stomach. It is a great gift though!

This is a very humorous book. Not only is the author clever and witty, there are some good recipes in the book as well.

I'm currently hungover. I used this book a couple times. I almost burnt down my house once using this book. But it's my fault, not the book's. I highly recommend taking the quiz in the beginning of the book, so you can figure out what meal to prepare.

How appropriate. It's a decent cookbook though, even if you aren't hungover. The best part for the hangoverness of it is that it has a scale as to how hard it is to cook relative to your hangover. Very nice for those mornings.

I bought this gift for a friend who loves to cook and go out drinking, so it was the PERFECT gift. I love the humor and the attitude that having a hangover is an opportunity - to cook great food! Thank you! :-)

A straight forward cookbook that is both humorous and practical.

We've all been there. The morning when we can't get out of bed and only wish some nonexistent household staff would stock out laps with greasy breakfast meat and scrambled eggs as we wash away our deepest morning after pain with Bloody Marys and mimosas. Alas, the concept of the "Hungover Cookbook" is a bit flawed. It's hard to imagine mustering the courage, let alone temper the stomach, to cook breakfast in the midst of historic hangovers. That being said, this book provides enough humor to motivate one through an attempt.

I purchased this for a friend as a gag, but we did find use for it. Take it camping or leave at the vacation house. There will be those mornings and The Hungover Cookbook is something that you and your friends, soldiers in the morning after battle, will have fun working through.
