After a big night of knocking back one too many, most of us end up with a hangover. Everyone has their own way of managing their pounding head and queasy stomach the morning after, but some hangover cures are better than others. Here’s how some famous chefs cope with the effects of a rowdy night of drinking.
John Currence, chef/owner of City Grocery - “My hangover remedy is just suck it up,” he says. “It’s gonna be brutal.” And he advises drinking water so that you can rehydrate and get rid of that headache.
Seamus Mullen, chef/owner of Tertulia - “The real secret hangover cure is this ultra-hydration fluid that medics carry. It’s a tiny bottle of super-concentrated electrolytes,” he says, adding that he uses them when he’s cycling in really hot conditions where you can get dehydrated easily. “They’re a phenomenal hangover cure.”
David Kinch, chef/owner of Manresa - He advises drinking pure cranberry juice with a little water before bed. “It’s like this super hydration thing going on,” he says.
Art Smith, chef/owner of Table Fifty-Two - He’s a big believer in the power of a really good vegetable juice. But Smith isn’t talking about a plain old processed V8, he’s suggesting a fresh veggie juice, one you make yourself that’ll put back nutrients and “nourish your body.”
Katie Button, chef/owner of Cúrate - She’s a fan of a classic hangover cure: something greasy like hash brown potatoes and eggs, along with a bloody mary.
Adam Richman, host of “Man Finds Food” - “Bacon, egg, and cheese on a toasted Kaiser roll, well-done French fries with extra salt, and a fountain Coke with ice,” he suggests. “Don’t forget the three Advil and loads of ice water.”
