“Hannah Hart is one of the smartest, funniest humans I know. She has done more than write a book- she has created a delightful hang-out in literary form. This book is my only friend now.” (Chris Hardwick, founder and CEO of Nerdist Industries)
“Hannah’s writing is like cold, leftover fried rice for breakfast: unusual, cultural, and overall . . . really f-ing good.” (Grace Helbig, author of Grace's Guide and creator and star of YouTube's It's Grace)
“Maybe cooking isn’t about creating culinarily perfect flavor art—maybe cooking is just part of living a life that you enjoy and that makes the world suck less. I’m not saying Hannah’s food isn’t good, but her ideas are butter...ahem...better.” (Hank Green, Vlogbrother)
From the Back Cover
One day, lonely cubicle dweller and otherwise bored New York City transplant Hannah Hart decided to make a fake cooking show for a friend back home in California. She opened her laptop, pulled out some bread and cheese, and then, as one does, started drinking. The video was called "Butter Yo Sh*t" and online sensation My Drunk Kitchen was born.
My Drunk Kitchen (the book!) includes recipes, stories, color photographs, and tips and tricks to inspire your own adventures in tipsy cooking. Hannah offers cocktail recommendations, culinary advice (like, remember to turn off the oven when you go to bed), and shares never-before-seen recipes such as:
- The Hartwich (Knowledge is ingenuity! Learn from the past!)
- Can Bake (Inventing things is hard! You don't have to start from scratch!)
- Latke Shotkes (Plan ahead to avoid a night of dread!)
- Tiny Sandwiches (Size doesn't matter! Aim to satisfy.)
- Saltine Nachos (It's not about resources! It's about being resourceful.)
In the end, My Drunk Kitchen may not be your go-to guide for your next dinner party . . . but it will make you laugh and drink . . . I mean think . . . about life.
