Would you like to marinate pork belly for the next six hours before eating your drunk midnight snack? Do you just randomly happen to have been soaking two pounds of beef tripe for the past 24 hours? No? Then guess what, you can't make any of these "late night munchie" recipes. This is easily the most wildly incorrectly named cookbook in the history of cookbooks. Its presented as famous chefs making fun, greasy food in the wee hours of the morn after the bar has closed but the party is still going. That is NOT what you get. These are ludicrous, complicated, and in many cases not even appetizing recipes, and almost NONE of them fill the role of ooey-gooey-cheesy-late-night-munchie. There are maybe 4 - 5 total recipes in this book that actually fit the description of late night meals you'd make while drunk but want something a little more elevated from a serious chef. I got this for my wife for Christmas because she'd been looking at it forever, and when we finally got to reading through it to mine for recipes, I was legitimately angry that I'd spent money on this. Could somebody out there please release a legitimate version of this concept?

For the Poutine recipe there was seriously good flow it went from a classic pouting to a goat poutine to a Chicken Tikka Poutine and it showed how versatile one recipe can be but others it would skip around. They discussed a ramen recipe in Austin and yet never talked about the exact recipe or what type of ramen only that it existed and its apparently good. \ what hurt the book is that sometimes the left page would have ingredients for part of a recipe then the right page would have the title of the recipe and then cooking directions... i feel like the title needs to be with the ingredient list. i found i enjoyed most of the photos taken and i did enjoy that almost every recipe had a photo especially since some recieps have unheard of titles to me such as Dale Talde.But not ever foreign name had a photo so it kind of deterred me from attempting.

    I plucked Munchies from the bookshelf of my local library because the cover was absolute food porn. On the plus side, the pictures are great and I would make most of the recipes if I could cook. What I didn't like was that the cookbook read like an ego trip for a bunch of chefs. Before each chapter, we are introduced to a dazzling talent from some well known restaurant or cafe (I only recognized Anthony Bourdain, Mario Batali and Momofuku Milk Bar but then I'm a New York native).

Readers are not told how these recipes came about, just these these chefs are awesome and revolutionizing current food trends or some marketing PR blather like that. Some of the recipes were inconsistently written; readers are not told how much of an item to have or use, just grab some cheese, some good bread and use a pan. Yeah, okay, thanks. Beautiful photographs but too wordy. Also, not enough dessert recipes! I saw, what? Three? Four! Come on!

Add a few drinks to me, and I lose the functionally part. I gravitated to the simpler recipes. Like the grilled cheese and the gravy Mac and cheese. Fans of the show Chef's Night Out will be like Munchies. Although, I liked the mini biographies of the chefs, I thought it was just all right.

    The premise of this recipe book is 'chefs tell you what they cook drunk at night' and I found that in that, it was probably perfect: complicated, niche-ingredient recipes for the food experts. For the lay-person, this book is a little less useful. I read it with a pen in hand, ready to write down any recipes I wanted to try, and I didn't find even one. If you're a fan of chefs, give this a read - otherwise still to Nigella's comfort food recipes.

    I received this arc from Netgalley for an honest review. This is kind of a toss up for me. I thought that this would be a cookbook with recipes from the tv show. What I got was a book with some recipes and the stories behind them, which is fine, but it just wasn't what I was expecting when looking at the cover. I think it will be a popular holiday gift though for the foodies out there. I received this arc from Netgalley for an honest review. This is kind of a toss up for me.

Following on the munchie theme, these guys need to take a cue from Jack in the Box and find some creativity. If someone wants munchies, they don't want to have to go shopping to create a mini bistro in their one room apartment. They want inspired combinations of foods that are generally readily available and cheap to create (preferably with a microwave but definitely faster than you can make a pack of instant Ramen)

    Mix 1 part bad hipster pen portraits, 50,000 parts useless yakkety yak, and 1 part pictures of food. Stir and stick under the short leg of a table. Here's the book's recipe for grilled cheese: "Grilled cheese: plenty of good quality unsalted butter softened for spreading on the bread. 2 thick slices of your favorite bread 1/2 cup coarsely grated cheese." Paraphrased instructions: Heat the pan over medium heat, butter both sides of bread top with cheese cook in pan until brown, 3-4 mins per side. put Mix 1 part bad hipster pen portraits, 50,000 parts useless yakkety yak, and 1 part pictures of food. Stir and stick under the short leg of a table. Here's the book's recipe for grilled cheese: "Grilled cheese: plenty of good quality unsalted butter softened for spreading on the bread. 2 thick slices of your favorite bread 1/2 cup coarsely grated cheese." Paraphrased instructions: Heat the pan over medium heat, butter both sides of bread top with cheese cook in pan until brown, 3-4 mins per side. put it on a cutting board and cut in half. That's the kind of bullshit contained within. What kind of cheese? What kind of bread? No idea. But it's sure to tell you to get a cutting board before you cut it because THAT'S the important part. You have been given more instruction on how to cut it than what should go in. That's no better than having someone intuitively guess "pan bread cheese butter go." And that's wasting everyone's time. I'm no chef, but here's a way to make a good grilled cheese with less aggravation than this $30 waste of paper: Bread: Use white bread because it usually has higher sugar content which makes it brown better. Homemade or bakery bread will work a lot better than the bagged bread, but bagged will work too. Cut it to 1/2 to 3/4 in thick per slice. Cheese: 2 slices of american cheese. Sometimes it takes more if you use bakery bread (bakery bread and homemade bread tend to be bigger) but you want a layer of cheese 2 slices thick covering the bread to about a quarter inch of the edge, whatever the size is. It's enough cheese to keep the whole thing from being too bready, but not too much that there's cheese oozing all over the place. Butter: Ever try to spread butter on white bread? It rips the bread. To avoid that aggravation, the book wants you to take out the butter in advance to make it easy to spread. Because most people think things like, "You know when I want a grilled cheese? In an hour." Adding an hour to the prep time of what is essentially fried bread is worthwhile, right? Other than the dude trying to finish up his online crappy hipster pen drawing art class, no one waits an hour for a hot cheese sandwich there, Chef Boyardee. Do it the easy way and skip the softening. Put around a tablespoon of butter in the pan. Melt it to a puddle. It's going to look like too much, but it's not. Stick the bread in it and let it soak it up. Wait 3-4 minutes. Take the sandwich out of the pan. Add a little less than a tablespoon of butter in the pan this time and put the other side of the sandwich in that puddle and let it soak it up. Leave it there for 3-4 minutes. Take it out and cut it in half if you want. Cutting board optional. Done. So if you're going to put something stupid like a grilled cheese in a cookbook, it better be original and specific. This book phones it in like a drunken telemarketer. Save yourself 30 bucks and fix your wobbly table another way.

I was under no obligation to review this book and this is my honest opinion. Munchies brings the web series, Chef's Night Out, to book form, with many of the world's best chefs reminiscing about their favorite ways to unwind with friends after their long shifts in kitchens around the globe. If readers are looking to kick back and relax with some of the best chefs in the world, then Munchies is the ideal food exploration cookbook. The recipes are not the stars here, which can be a little disconcerting to those who are looking for creative and inspirational dishes. The lengthy descriptions of the chefs and the situations that inspired their recipes are given more prominence. The accompanying photos give Munchies a cookbook feel, but there are really very few recipes for the number of pages. I found myself flipping through the pages to find the few and far between dishes, which does not bode well for the book as a whole. Readers who are looking for a straightforward cookbook should look elsewhere, as Munchies does not deliver on the recipe front. There are many simplistic recipes, like Cheese Quesadillas (p. 69) and Gemelli Pasta with Peas, Chicken, and Mushrooms (p. 129), which seem to outnumber the more intricate ones, like Pad Thai (p. 121). Munchies was a miss for me, as I would rather choose a cookbook loaded with inspirational dishes than one that neglects the recipes for conversations with the chefs.

    OMG. Just reading the table of contents made me get my drool on -- fried shrimp and bacon grilled cheese, soft-shell crab sliders, "things with tortillas', 'hardcore' (goat poutine with redeye gravy) -- WHAT?! I don't care if I have to hit the gym harder (well....okay, maybe I do, but it'll be worth it). "How to drink vodka like a Russian" -- not that I needed to be enabled to do so, but hey, life is short! It's a great book to read for fun, however in terms of the layout, I would have preferred OMG.

I'm not familiar with the show "Chef's Night Out", nor did I recognize many of the chefs (I live under a rock), but it was the food and drink that got me (and that's the most important thing, right?)

    Munchies by J.J. Goode and Helen Hollyman is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in mid-October. A giant variety of late-night meals and snacks from Chef's Night Out that loosely stick to the categories of breakfast, pizza, Mexican food, starches, sweets, meat, and fish. The photos, sketched portraits, and inebriated genius of the recipes themselves speak of good times, partying hard, and cooking naughty comfort food.

    This was really a way for celebrity chefs to brag about who they hang out with and cook for. None of the recipes call for normal ingredients and come in HUGE portion sizes. Stopped reading the recipes half way through the book. The only thing good about the book is the photographs.

    I didn't read any of the story, because they didn't look interesting. I was very disappointed in the recipes. Grilled cheese: 2 slices of bread, cheese and butter; then grill.

This cookbook is divided by the type of meal including: Drinks, Sandwiches, Things with Tortillas, Hardcore, Noodles Rice and Grains, Meat and Seafood, Dessert, and The Morning After.

I appreciate that there is a photo to go with every recipe. I find these helpful even on a normal day, but if I'm making middle of the night munchie food, I'm going to need those photos even more. Plus, they looked delicious. The steps aren't numbered and can get pretty long. But that being said, they're in layman terms and are pretty easy to follow. I think the book is a bit too long. There's a lot of stories, which are relatively interesting, but they dragged on a little too much and took up a bit too much of the story. When reading a cookbook, I want the bulk of it to be recipes with complementary stories, not the other way around. The actual recipes were hit and miss for me. The ones that sounded good sounded AMAZING. But there were a bunch that just seemed kind of boring, especially when you're looking for something that's next-level delicious after a long night out. Some of the recipes that sounded the best to me include Fried Shrimp and Bacon Grilled Cheese, Smoked Bologna and Raclette Sandwich, and Goat Poutine with Redeye Gravy. Overall, this book is worth a look through and it's something I'd like to have on hand, even though I might not have the ingredients when I want them. It's a good gift for the foodie and/or stoner in your group. I received a copy in exchange for my honest review.

This is not a cookbook containing only photos of delicious-looking food and the corresponding recipes, there are intros, and also full (mostly-humorous) articles which go with every single recipe! The book is very nicely sectioned off, so that you can find something specific that you may be looking for, or so that it pleases you to read through it if you like things nicely-categorized (such as for a reader like myself). Munchies is a hardcover book; sturdily made so that it can make its home on your coffee table, or in your kitchen without being overly damaged. The pages are also of the highest quality, and will also be resistant to food and drink spills, as well as inevitable droolage. Every single page of this book is glossy, and the quality of colour is very satisfying. Like I said above, this book made me very hungry and wanting to spend all of my money on restaurant outings. It also made me feel more open to experimenting with the mixture of certain food-types that I would not have normally thought to combine. A great quality book, inside and out!
