Book Description

14 Oct 2010

The morning after - the drilling headache, the waves of nausea, the paranoia, the guilt, the shame - yes, it's the dreaded HANGOVER.

We are all familiar with the general misery. What are less well known are the nuances of the hungover states. According to P.G. Wodehouse there are six different types of hangover that can bring the high-spirited reveller to his or her knees, and each requires a very specific remedy.

The Hungover Cookbook is a witty self-help manual that helps the morning after drinker to identify the nature of your hangover and tailor the treatment accordingly.

With delicious and restorative recipes - from Milton's zingy knickerbocker glory to his irresistible tahini and tomato toast, the English Breakfast tortilla to Mexican ranch-style eggs - The Hungover Cookbook invites you to transform dealing with a hangover into a subtle, multi-faceted and enjoyable art instead of merely chucking a 'full English' at it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 16 Nov 2010
By Joe
This is a fantastic book! The recipes are really creative with some odd sounding creations that when made are fabulous and fitting for the morning after the night before. I would highly recommend this book for all cooking levels weather you are a beans on toast lover or a Heston Blumenthal you'll have a lot of fun with this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely read and makes for a charming gift 16 Nov 2010
Having read and now tried several of these recipes, I highly recommend The Hungover Cookbook. Its more than just recipes - the commentary kept us chuckling and was really well written. Also loving the recipes - great variety!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Hungoevr Cookbook 5 Jun 2012
By Chrissy
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Extremely well written - so much so that one could read it with a hangover!
Assessing what type of hangover one has rings so many bells (but not literally!) - anyone who has had one too many can associate with it - no matter how much older than 18 one is.
The receipes are easy to follow, and as they are written by a man, even for a man, and good to eat. But above all they do seem to work - not that I have tried them all - yet!
A great present for any 18+

5.0 out of 5 stars A saviour after a long night 24 Mar 2013
The recipes are varied and wittily written. There is humour, good food and it basically saves you after a long night when the last thing you want to think about is what to cook. Just open the book at whatever page and you will surely find something delicious.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good present 19 Jan 2013
By Natalie
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Bought as a Christmas present. For the price it is a really good item, I liked the quotes and quizzes throughout the book. It was a lot smaller than I expected.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good read 3 April 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Excellent little book. Full of interesting and tasty recipes, not all for the healthy eating brigade it must be said! Also you might have trouble putting some of these dishes together as not all are fit for the heavily hung over - it all depends on how much focus you can muster on the morning after. A well written, entertaining and useful book.

Why there is no soup recipe in the book? Isn't that a great hangover cure? Other than that, the book is pretty cool, maybe some recipes are a bit too complicated, since my hands... Read more
