Honey & Co’s new book: listen now
This week I talk to the owners of Honey & Co about Israeli cuisine, women in the kitchen and how, with their new book, you can recreate the food you eat in their restaurant, at home.
Husband and wife team, Itamar Srulovich and Sarit Packer, are the couple behind the award-winning Honey & Co in London. As well as their restaurant, which opened on Warren Street in 2012, they have another restaurant called Honey & Smoke and a food store, Honey & Spice.
I chat to the former Ottolenghi head chefs about the current craze in Israeli flavours and how they translate those flavours into traditional, home cooking.
We also discuss how Honey & Co is a company predominantly run by women which wasn’t predetermined but is now paving the future for females in the industry.
And finally, Sarit and Itamar tell us how their mission is for everyone to try cooking the food, that they eat in their restaurant, at home.
Honey & Co: At Home: Middle Eastern recipes from our kitchen by Sarit Packer and Itamar Srulovich (Pavilion, £26), with photography by Patricia Niven, is out now.
