Milton Crawford is an amateur chef, professional boozer, poet, traveller, essayist, and a fantastic drinker. He believes that a hangover is like being crucified – it offers ordinary mortals the chance of resurrection on a daily basis. Not surprisingly, he is the author of The Hungover Cookbook (Clarkson Potter, 2011). He's also the winner of the 2011 Bombardier Beer Writing Competition. His heroes are people who found the palace of wisdom via the road of excess, to paraphrase William Blake.
