Honey & Co: Food from the Middle East

by Itamar Srulovich and Sarit Packer


Recreate fresh salads, slow-cooked stews and light dinners from couple Sarit Packer and Itamar Srulovic’s wonderful London restaurant Honey & Co. They are Israeli born and bred, but the book is influenced by flavors from all over the Middle-East. Readable and always cookable, the book is playful and engaging - from the curiously entitled section on ‘balls and stuff’ right up to the irresistible collection of desserts.

from the publisher

After falling in love through their shared passion for food, Itamar Srulovich and Sarit Packer launched Honey & Co in 2012. Since opening the doors, they have created exquisite dishes, delectable menus, and an atmosphere that's as warm, inviting, and exotic as the food they serve.

Recipes include spreads and dips, exquisitely balanced salads, one-pan dishes, simple fragrant soups, rich Persian entrees, the tagines of North Africa, the Sofritos of Jerusalem, and the herb-infused stews of Iran. Honey & Co. brings the flavors of the Middle East to life in a wholly accessible way, certain to entice and satisfy in equal measure. "Honey & Co's food – taking its cue from generations of dedicated home cooks – captures everything that is generous, hearty, and delicious in the Middle East. 'Soul-food' has never been more appropriate."―Yotam Ottolenghi

This book has many virtues - the bright Middle Eastern flavours, the clear instructions, the delightful descriptions of the trials of running a small business. But I love it most for the heady perfumes it fills the kitchen with when you cook from it: dried lime, mahleb, cardamom. These are recipes for pleasure, not for show.

Nice easy take on Middle Eastern cooking, I particularly love the dips and the desserts, most especially the lovely cheesecake made with kaddif pastry.

Nicola Twilley


A relatively new acquisition, but everything I've made has been delicious and different. I'm saving up for their baking book now.
