A Taste of Honey, a deli based in West Didsbury, is looking for your favourite hangover or heartbreak beating recipes to make the most unique cookbook ever.

Penny, who owns A Taste of Honey owner, believes that food evokes feelings and memories and the most powerful are heartbreaks and hangovers.

Penny says: “Food unites us and brings us together. From a hangover breakfast to dinner with the girls after a particularly painful breakup, we get together and eat our emotions. It’s a restorative process that evokes such strong memories for us, so what better than to bring them all together, share our experiences and celebrate the food that makes us feel good in a collaborative cookbook.

“Our communities are all very disparate at the moment and we have seen first hand in the deli how important great food and drink are in helping keep our spirits up in this tough time. I hope that the collective bringing together of our memories and favourite dishes will be as healing as the food itself.”

So if you find yourself munching a mix of ice cream, biscuits and Baileys that just perfectly cures heartbreak then it’s about time for you to share it with the world.

Personally, if I’m hungover the last place you will find me is in the kitchen rustling up a culinary delight. What I will do is get to the offy for a full-fat coke and the biggest bag of salt and vinegar crisps money can buy.

If you’ve ever eaten your way out of heartbreak or a hangover (or a deadly combination of the two) – and I know you have, because everyone has – A Taste of Honey wants to hear from you.
