The Sad Bastard Cookbook

Life is hard. Some days are at the absolute limit of what we can manage. Some days are worse than that. Eating—picking a meal, making it, putting it into your facehole—can feel like an insurmountable challenge. We wrote The Sad Bastard Cookbook to share our coping strategies.

The cover, featuring an uncooked block of ramen on a plate.

The e-book will be free for everyone, because we believe that coping strategies should be as widely accessible as we can make them. But our newsletter subscribers will get access a month before everyone else does, plus sneak peaks of recipes. Sign up here.

Want to help us make The Sad Bastard Cookbook a success? Work with us to game the book-recommendation algorithms so more people see the cookbook in their suggested “To Read” books. Right now, mark it on Goodreads or Storygraph as “Want to Read”. When you’ve got your copy and you’ve read it, leave us a review. The algorithms rate reviews higher than anything else, so saying what you honestly thought of the book is incredibly valuable to us—and to other readers. It’s one of the best things you can do to promote our work.
