|Titles:||The Hungover Cookbook|
Amateur chef, professional boozer, poet, traveller and essayist, Milton Crawford is also a fantastic drinker. He states that 'seven days without a drink makes one weak'. He once said that a hangover is like being crucified – it offers ordinary mortals the chance of resurrection on a daily basis. His heroes are people who found the palace of wisdom via the road of excess, to paraphrase William Blake. They include Tolstoy and Buddha. His ambition is to survive for long enough to become a similarly wise man in his old age as these two grand ex-debauchees.
Milton is the author of The Hungover Cookbook, published by Square Peg / Random House, and the winner of the 2011 Bombardier Beer Writing Competition. Milton is now writing the follow-up, The Drunken Cookbook, again for Square Peg. The Drunken Cookbook will be published in October 2013.
