Product Description

Review

There is a cheering warmth here, from the quinces on the cover to the self-deprecating stories about running a small business. Above all, I commend this book because my kitchen has never smelt as good when cooking from it. (Food Book of the Year - The Sunday Times)

It's the kind of stuff you'd love to dish up to your pals and bask in the resulting praise... It's food you would always be happy to eat. (Guardian)

The ingredient that is in every mouthful, that isn't on the menu, is the huge dollop of home-made love... This food comes from a husband and wife making their own small business from a tiny kitchen and small dining room, and everything in it is infused with a warm hug of hospitality. (The Sunday Times)

This is indeed food made by people who like to eat. It is food that cares less about how it looks than how it tastes ... It feels like an act of love. (Guardian)

I'm off to Honey & Co on Warren Street for what I'm going to describe dreamily as Middle Eastern soul food, largely as I can't think of a better way to explain the restorative value of letting husband-and-wife team Itamar Srulovich and Sarit Packer beckon you in and feed you ... it feels exactly like wandering into a little family-run room, after a snoozy day sunbathing on holiday, and quickly cottoning on that you've found a winner. (Evening Standard)

Here, the food is as much about creating an atmosphere as it is about any individual dish, a new way of looking at Middle Eastern cuisine, subtler, more modern. (STELLA, Telegraph)

What began life as a modest neighbourhood restaurant in Bloomsbury has since attracted a staunch following with its heartwarming dishes from the Middle East. Sarit Packer and Itamar Srulovich, the couple who run Honey & Co. have now written a book that captures - with sympathetic honesty - the love and toil involved. (Harpers Bazaar)

The lure of this book about an eatery is clear: the owners' stories that reflect on love, immigration and identity are endearing and universal, and the book is heavily seasoned with them... If you love Honey & Co, this book is a must-read. (Time Out, Cookbook of the Week)

It's not unusual for a book to grow from the seed of a restaurant. Most will start off telling the reader about the restaurant, the author, the inspiration and philosophy. Few will tell you how the owners fell in love over oven-fresh burek and pigeon stuffed with pine nut rice. How they sneered at each others introductions to "Haifa's best falafel" and "Jerusalem's best falafel", each secretly enjoying both. Few will introduce you to the staff, from the loveable front-of-house Rachael to "sweet, funny" Carlos the kitchen porter... Each section of this book is lightly spiced with just the right amount of anecdote and memory. It's blindingly obvious that hearts and souls and a great deal of love have gone into it. That's not something I come across too often in a cookbook. It also made me laugh out loud more than once. (Saffron Strands)

The recipes are as reliable, imaginative and savoury as you'd hope from Ottolenghi alumni, but the other big draw is the narrative. The couple met in a kitchen, and haven't stopped sharing their favourite foods with each other and the people around them ever since. (Guardian)

The modest subtitle of Honey & Co's debut cookbook, Food from the Middle East, published this month, doesn't begin to capture the richness and variety of the recipes - sardines cured in vine leaves, oxtail sofrito, their celebrated feta and honey cheesecake. But it's not just about the superb dishes: the book also captures a sense of place, bottling the personality of the tiny, 10-table restaurant on London's Warren Street that won last year's Observer Food Monthly award for best newcomer. (Killian Fox Observer Food Monthly)

Food lovers have been waiting for this book ever since it was first commissioned... it is full of enchanting Middle Eastern dishes... This is Arabian Nights food delivered with passion and verve. (Saga Magazine)

It's the kind of stuff you'd love to dish up to your pals and bask in the resulting praise... It's food you would always be happy to eat. (Marina O’Loughlin Guardian)

Falafel fans rejoice! You'll find three recipes for this Middle Eastern favourite in Honey & Co's book, pluse the full complement of mezze dishes, dips, salads, breads and reich slow-cooked dishes, such as the melting lamb shawarma that I made. These recipes suit all abilities, written in an accessible sytle with mouth-watering photographs. (Julie Shepherd Square Meal)

This is indeed food made by people who like to eat. It is food that cares less about how it looks than how it tastes ... It feels like an act of love. (Jay Rayner Guardian)

The friendly yet knowledgeable vibe of the restaurant glows from the pages too. It's packed with mouth-watering recipes: pickles, salads, slow-cooked stews and show-stopping puds. This is a book to treasure. (Independent on Sunday)

Middle Eastern Cooking at its most inspiring. Brilliantly useful and exquisitely designed. (BBC Good Food Magazine)

Itamar Srulovich and Sarit Packer, chef patrons of Fitzrovia's Honey & Co, also published their - very romantic - volume of recipes rolled up with the story of how they came to be one of London's foodie sensations. (Jewish Chronicle)

I'm smitten with the sweet spice mix from Honey & Co, a warm, heady mix including cardamom, fennel seed, mahleb and cinnamon. A teaspoon sprinkled on porridge is so satisfying it can almost persuade me to forgo sugar. (Stella)

Book Description

Homely, fragrant and big-hearted food from the kitchen of Honey & Co.

I was told many years ago that one should never judge a book by its cover. Well, they were wrong, this book's eye catching cover is as good as its contents. Knowing little or nothing about Middle Eastern cooking, the unfamiliar dishes and their recipes sound a little daunting, but when you start to read the details you find that they are easy to follow and understand. The photographs are gorgeous and inspirational. Do plan ahead the shopping list for your menu as some of the ingredients will be beyond comprehension or availability to the average village shop for any emergency last minute shopping!

I work near this restaurant and try and eat there frequently. More often now I have the book as you can try the food and then cook it! It is more authentic than Ottolenghi but equally superbly crafted. Fantastic food for entertaining, easy to cook but has that kind of twist and zing that makes everyone think you're a genius. You will need good stockists for some things but nothing seems ridiculously obscure. I love using it but also love reading it as it's characterful and fun and evocative.

This is an engaging and practical book. The recipes are inspiring but the instructions are clear and helpful. i have cooked four things from it so far and all have been excellent. I bake a lot and the cherry cake was one of the best I have made - will definitely become a regular.

I've had this book for a week and haven't stopped cooking from it. Everything I've tried is really straightforward and absolutely delicious, and they seem to be very forgiving recipes - if I haven't had an ingredient I've substituted something else and it's still tasted fantastic. The cherry cake has been made twice - neither time with cherries! and was even more delicious the second time round.

Have been waiting for a long time for this book to come out as I love eating at the restaurant. Great recipes, great background info on each and so far everything I've cooked from it has been easy and absolutely wonderful and tasty. I'm a experienced cook but I think anyone can have great success with this book. I don't think ingredients are very difficult to find either. Definitely one of the best cookbooks from the 100's I own.

The story of how Honey and Co. was set up is so well written, warm and funny that by the time you have finished it you want to to be part of their restaurant "family" eating their great food and chatting to their wonderfully eclectic mix of customers and staff. Then you get to the recipes - they really work! This beautifully laid out book is a pleasure to own, a joy to use and a great gift for friends if you are feeling generous.

A delightful book. I loved reading about the authors, how they met and how they came to write the book. There are so many lovely recipes and it is so interesting to read about food from another country. I look forward to trying the recipes and opening my palate to new taste experiences. The quality of the book is superb with beautiful photographs
