Hungover? There, There…Try Nigella Lawson, Jamie Oliver And Gordon Ramsay’s Head-Easing Recipes

24 December 2013 by

Hurty head? Feeling abit off colour? According to new scientific research, the only magical elixir that will effectively cure a humdinger of all hangovers is..... a can of Sprite.

The chinese researchers who discovered this also say if you don't have a can of this lemon and lime drink to hand, soda water will work just as well.

But if all that fizz is too much to stomach, and comfort food is more your thing, try these suggestions from top chefs, Nigella, Gordon, Jamie and co.

Then, crawl back under that duvet….

GORDON RAMSAY: "I do occasionally overindulge, especially at this time of year when I like to gather together my head chefs for a well-earned Christmas drink. I'll get a cab home, safe in the knowledge that Tana (my wife) will have bought in all the ingredients for a kedgeree to fend off the next morning's hangover. It's the best, as the slight stodginess soaks up any remaining Southern Comfort. It's not a 100 per cent cure, but then we're supposed to suffer a little... aren't we?”



NIGELLA LAWSON "Try my Eggs In Purgatory recipe. I’m not saying that New Year’s Day has to mean you have a hangover, but after that evening of almost-enforced carousing, this dish of eggs cooked in a fiery tomato sauce can feel like heaven." 

And if a hair of the dog is more your thing Nigella suggests a classic drink called The Prairie Oyster, which consists of an egg yolk, Tabasco, Worcestershire sauce, brandy and vinegar, "you have to swallow it down in one gulp.” 



RAYMOND BLANC “My cure for a Christmas hangover is Chartreuse liqueur, which is distilled alcohol with 130 herbal extracts. My mum makes a homemade version, which cures all ailments. However, if you can’t get hold of this, I’d recommended good old-fashioned Alka-Seltzer.”


JAMIE OLIVER “Try my Bloody Mary. If you’re feeling abit rough, it’s badass!”
