Helen Hollyman

Helen Hollyman is the co-author of the highly anticipated cookbook, MUNCHIES: Late-Night Meals from the World’s Best Chefs. Inspired by the hugely popular show Chef's Night Out (on VICE Media's food website, MUNCHIES) this cookbook brings these episodes to the page with snapshots of food culture in cities around the world, plus tall tales and fuzzy recollections from 70 of the world's top chefs, including Anthony Bourdain, Dominique Crenn, David Chang, Danny Bowien, Wylie Dufresne, Inaki Aizpitarte, and Enrique Olvera, among others. Then there are the 65 recipes: dishes these chefs cook when they're done feeding customers, and ready to feed their friends instead. With chapters like "Drinks" (i.e., how to get your night started), "Things with Tortillas," "Hardcore" (which includes pizzas, nachos, poutines, and more), and "Morning After" (classy and trashy dishes for the bleary-eyed next day), MUNCHIES features more than 65 recipes to satisfy any late-night craving and plenty of drinks to keep the party going (2017, Ten Speed Press).
