About the Author & Interviewer
Sarit Packer & Itamar Srulovich are the husband-and-wife team behind London restaurants Honey & Co, Honey & Smoke, and deli Honey & Spice. Their debut book, Honey & Co The Cookbook, was named Cookbook of the Year by the Sunday Times, Fortnum & Mason Food & Drink Awards Cookery Book of the Year 2015, and the UK Guild of Food Writer’s Award Winner for Best First Book. Their most recent book Honey & Co: At Home was a silver 2019 Foreword Indies winner.
Renee Erickson is a James Beard award-winning chef, author, and co-owner of multiple properties in Seattle, Washington: The Walrus and the Carpenter, The Whale Wins, Barnacle, Bar Melusine, Bateau, Westward, and several General Porpoise Doughnuts and Coffee locations. As a Seattle native (well, Woodinville to be exact), Renee's restaurants highlight the bounty of the Pacific Northwest with a European sensibility. Bon Appetit Magazine has compared her to M.F.K. Fisher, Elizabeth David, and Julia Child. Renee Erickson's food, casual style, and appreciation of simple beauty is an inspiration to her staff and guests in the Pacific Northwest and beyond. In 2014 she published her first cookbook “A Boat, a Whale and a Walrus” to critical acclaim, finding itself on top reading lists while winning a 2015 PNBA book award - the first for a cookbook. Her book “Getaway: Food and Drink to Transport You" was released in April 2021.
About the Book
The award-winning Honeys are back with more delicious dishes from the Middle East, and this time their focus is firmly on the grill.
Join Sarit and Itamar on a journey filled with flavor and fire as they visit their favorite cities collecting recipes, stories, and the best of culinary culture along the way.
Fire has always seasoned Sarit and Itamar’s food—both at home and in their own grill house, Honey & Smoke (London)—and now you too will fall in love with this comforting, no-fuss fare. It couldn’t be easier to create a simple mouth-watering meal for two or a joyful feast for your friends and family. From grilled peaches with almond tahini and charred endive, figs with manouri cheese and pomegranate sauce, prawns in honey and fresh cilantro, to smoked short ribs, the scent and flavor created by the meeting of heat, wood, flesh, and plant will never fail to lend your food a special, magical quality.
You’ll also find five city features on Alexandria, Egypt; Amman, Jordan; Acre, Israel; Izmir, Turkey; and Thessaloniki, Greece, all bursting with inspiration from the best fire-fueled eateries each destination has to offer—from the greatest grill houses to the humblest roadside kebab joints, balcony culture, and open fires on shores. Complete with culinary souvenirs including beautiful ingredient combinations, age-old tricks and techniques, curious kitchen tools, and clever 'rainy day’ advice on how to recreate the dishes using a conventional oven or stovetop, heat the coals, come together, and cook with the flavor of smoke.
