About the author

Helen Graves is a London-dwelling sandwich fanatic who has made it her personal mission to find the best sandwiches known to man or woman. The whole time she has done nothing but moan about the lack of decent recipe books devoted to sandwiches while simultaneously doing nothing about it. All that is now about to change. Visit Helen’s websites at and The author is based in London, UK.

There’s no point denying it, drinking is fun and eating is pretty good, too. Combine these activities and you end up with one of the simplest, most enjoyable experiences on the planet: getting legless and consuming some incredible edibles. My Drunken Kitchen celebrates this beautiful match made in the kitchen with a collection of stories and recipes based around the theme of getting nicely lubricated and enjoying some top quality (and sometimes questionable quality!) munch. Chapters cover all occasions that merit the consumption of alcohol and food—from all-day drinking sessions that get your culinary creative juices flowing to having your friends over for a boozy dinner. Each of these chapters will contain a selection of delicious recipes to try and, of course, some drinks and cocktails to sample as you cook. Also included is a section dedicated to using alcohol as an ingredient in your cooking. Finally, there’s Hangovers, which looks at the moment in time when you make the decision to carry on the morning after the night before and need that extra bit of fuel to kickstart your mind and body back into hardcore boozing action. Enjoy.
