Revue de presse
“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 artmaybe 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)
Présentation de l'éditeur
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 bottle of wine in the other?) 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 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 Shotkas (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.)
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. 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.

MAIS, oui, il y a un mais, Hannah ce n'est pas que ça. Je précise d'abord qu'Hannah boit peu d'alcool, c'est surtout une adepte du thé, et que donc 2 verres de vin et elle est déjà en état d'ébriété. Chaque vidéo renferme aussi de beaux jeux de mots, de beaux moments d'émotions et bcp de WTF. Les plus grands noms (youtubers, geeks, chefs) sont venus collaborer avec elle : Felicia Day, Jamie Olivier, Mary-Louise Parker...
Revenons-en au MAIS...Hannah a une deuxième chaîne qui s'appelle yourharto, et là ça devient autre chose, c'est plus intime, elle y parle de son coming-out, de ses craintes, elle se dévoile énormément, elle raconte son parcours : comment de traductrice en japonais, elle a tout quitté pour se lancer sur youtube. Aujourd'hui, elle a plus d'un million d'abonnés, on s'appelle les Hartosexuals ou les Kitchenettes, et quand on se rencontre, on appelle ça des "Have a Harto day", mais ce n'est pas une simple rencontre, on est bénévole le temps d'une journée dans une banque alimentaire, on joint l'utile à l'agréable.Lire la suite ›
A ton of puns, some pretty good recipes and a lot of fun.

For the uninitiated, Hannah Hart began her rise to kitchen stardom with the famously slurred words, “Hello, welcome to my drunk kitchen.” We learned—while things were being dropped, burnt, and forgotten—how to make grilled cheese. But not just grilled cheese: grilled cheese with humor, fun, and entertainment.
Since then, Hannah has attracted millions of viewers, partnered with drunk celebrities, and raised money for charity. Now she has a book.
The question is, does the same fun cross over into book form? Yes! A thousand times yes. The book has lots of off-shoot narratives written by Hannah about the joys of friendship and having fun, all organized in neat categories around her food creations. There are tons and tons of full-color pictures with it all, plus cute comedic drawings and quotes. Every idea is followed by one of Hannah’s Life Lessons.
For instance, one “recipe” in this book is Hannah’s Pizzadilla. Ingredients are: tortillas, marinara sauce, cheese, and “tissues for everyone who starts to cry tears of joy when you bring this out to serve.” The instructions basically say “cook until edible” in the oven, and there are five pictures of Hannah cooking this stove-top. You’ll get the idea of how it blends together, and maybe you’ll try it, maybe you’ll come up with something different, but ultimately you’ll laugh and enjoy the experience. (Hint: this is a great book to flip through with a friend next to you.)
Sometimes Hannah advocates getting frozen snacks from Trader Joe’s, sometimes you won’t even know what she’s mixing together (such as the one where she’s supposedly ‘high’), and other times it is pretty cut and dry with what you have on hand. Every list of ingredients starts with Words of Wisdom and a suggested opening cocktail.
Here’s a quote from Hannah, “Pro Tip: To learn more about things, read books or use the Internet.” Okay, maybe you had to be there. Okay, maybe I should start a thing where I review books while drunk. Or not. We’ll see.
Here’s a quote she included from someone famous, “Drink because you are happy, but never because you are miserable.” G.K. Chesterton said that in Heretics.
Bottom line: go into this having fun. You may learn some handy kitchen ideas (I sure did..yum, yum!), but you’ll definitely walk away smiling.
By the way, thanks !t books for sending this to me for review. The book is GORGEOUS: hard bound, lots and lots of colors and pictures. This is something to experience with others. Oh, and this will be the last book printed under the name !t books: they’re now going to be called Dey Street Book.
As a 23-year old human, I also find the book fantastic! I laughed out loud every other page and was prompted to thinking about a lot of things, including but not limited to: compassion, adulthood, insecurities, family, and love. I’m setting this book on the coffee table in my living room, and I already know that picking it up and flipping to a random recipe will be my new go to pick-me-up when I’m having a rough day. It’s just that delightful.
And a final note about the content: There are 4 different sections that each lead with a brief parody self-help essay, and the bulk of the book is recipes. The recipes each start with a quote and end with a life lesson. The recipes themselves are all over the place. A handful of them are obviously more metaphorical than intended for actual implementation, some look absolutely delicious, and the majority seem to fall between those two extremes. All are quirky & funny & surprisingly uplifting.
Thank you for a wonderful read Hannah!
