Hannah Hart
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.

Jack E. Levin
“Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation,
conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.”



Long before his conservative manifesto Liberty and Tyranny became a #1 New York Times bestseller, Mark R. Levin’s love for his country was instilled in him by his father, Jack E. Levin. At family dinners, Jack would share his bountiful knowledge of American history and, especially, the inspiration of Abraham Lincoln.



The son of immigrants, Jack Levin is an American patriot who responded with deep personal emotion
to Lincoln’s call for liberty and equality. His admiration for the great Civil War president inspired
him to personally design and produce a beautiful volume, enhanced with period illustrations and
striking battlefield images by Matthew Brady and other renowned photographers of the era, that
brings to life the words of Lincoln’s awe-inspiring response to one of the Civil War’s costliest conflicts.



Now Jack Levin’s loving homage to the spirit of American freedom is available in an essential edition
that features his original foreword as well as a touching new preface by his son, Mark Levin. In
this way, Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address Illustrated celebrates the passing of patriotic
pride and historical insight from generation to generation, from father to son.



***



The day following the dedication of the National Soldier’s Cemetery at Gettysburg, Edward Everett, who spoke before Lincoln, sent him a note saying: “Permit me to express my great admiration for the thoughts expressed by you, with such eloquent simplicity and appropriateness, at the consecration of the cemetery. I should be glad, if I could flatter myself that I came as near to the central idea of the occasion, in two hours, as you did in two minutes.”



Lincoln wrote back to Everett: “In our respective parts yesterday, you could not have
been excused to make a short address, nor I a long one. I am pleased to know that in
your judgement the little I did say was not entirely a failure.”
