“Just the sort of food I want to eat: welcoming, abundant, and with as much heart as flavor.”—Nigella Lawson
From breads to bakes, salads to sweets, there is something for everyone in this celebration of Middle Eastern cooking. Wholesome, fresh, and seasonal ingredients are organized into chapters For Us Two, For Friends, For the Weekend, For a Crowd, and For the Kitchen. Enjoy authentic recipes like Jerusalem sesame bread filled with harissa and lemon chicken, tuck into a crisp salad with saffron-poached pears with walnut tahini, or delight in a fish pastille, among many more.
The mouthwatering recipes are quick and simple to make. Whip them up for lunch or a weekend meal without forward planning, special ingredients, or fancy equipment—these will quickly become staple recipes that you will revisit again, and again.
Packed full of stylish photography, this book takes Sarit and Itamar out of the restaurant kitchen and into their home. The recipes and surrounding stories are written from the heart with affection for the food they love.
Sarit Packer and Itamar Srulovich opened Honey & Co. in 2012, launching their restaurant Honey & Smoke, and deli Honey & Spice close behind.
Cooking and baking since she was five, Sarit trained at Butler’s Wharf, at the Orrery under Chris Galvin, J Sheekey, The OXO Tower, Ottolenghi, and Nopi. Itamar Srulovich was born and raised in Jerusalem.
Cooking since the age of five, and leaving a great mess in the kitchen ever since, Itamar trained on the job in various places in Tel-Aviv where he met Sarit.
Honey & Co. The Cookbook (2015) was named Cookbook of the Year by The Sunday Times, Fortnum & Mason Food & Drink Awards Cookery Book of the Year 2015, and The Guild of Food Writer’s Award Winner for Best First Book.
