My Drunk Kitchen : A Guide to Eating, Drinking, and Going with Your Gut
About the book
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER 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.
"I defy anyone to read this surprisingly useful book and not come away from it madly in love with Harto, hoping against hope that one day she will turn up, with alcohol and honesty and a heaped pile of humor, in your kitchen too." Neil Gaiman, No. 1 New York Times bestselling author of The Ocean at the End of the Lane

Upon her graduation, Hart moved to San Francisco to live with her best friend and 'Hannalyze This' Podcast co-host, Hannah Gelb. She later moved to Brooklyn, New York, to pursue a writing career. She ended up proofreading Japanese and English for a Manhattan-based translating firm instead of her initial dream of writing screenplays. Within two months of launching her YouTube channel, she ended up quitting her 9–5 job in order to focus on My Drunk Kitchen.
My Drunk KitchenMy Drunk Kitchen traces its beginning to March 2011, when Hart was at her sister's home, chatting with a friend over webcam. Hart used her Macintosh computer to record herself drinking wine while attempting to make a grilled cheese sandwich without any cheese. Hart uploaded the video to YouTube as My Drunk Kitchen. Viewers began asking for another "episode" of the video, and Hart complied with more recordings. To establish the initial upload as the first episode of a series, she renamed it "Butter Yo Shit." By July 2011, My Drunk Kitchen had gathered 800,000 hits. Hart has hosted several celebrity guests on My Drunk Kitchen, including British chef Jamie Oliver, actress Mary-Louise Parker, actor/host Chris Hardwick, video blogger Tyler Oakley, former NSYNC member Lance Bass, and author John Green, who subsequently wrote the foreword to Hart's cookbook. Comedian Sarah Silverman was also featured in the show in December 2014 in an episode which demonstrated the therapeutic and medicinal use of cannabis. New episodes of My Drunk Kitchen are uploaded each Thursday on Hart's main channel. In 2013 at the 3rd Streamy Awards, Hart won the Streamy Award for Best Female Performance in a Comedy. In 2014, Hart co-hosted the 4th Streamy Awards with her colleague Grace Helbig. My Drunk Kitchen would also win the presentation's award for best comedy. By April 2015, Hart's first episode "Butter Yo Shit" had 3.6 million hits. As of June 2015, her channel MyHarto had over 2.3 million subscribers and over 206 million views.
