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 Packer trained at Butlers Wharf and has worked at the Orrery under Chris Galvin, J Sheekey, 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, Srulovich trained on the job in various places in Tel Aviv, where he met Packer. Their debut book, Honey & Co: Food from the Middle East (2015), was named Cookbook of the Year by The Sunday Times (UK), Fortnum & Mason Food and Drink Awards’ Cookery Book of the Year, and Best First Book from the Guild of Food Writers (UK). They have written three more books, Honey & Co.: The Baking Book, Honey & Co. at Home, and their latest, Chasing Smoke: Cooking Over Fire Around the Levant, released in 2021. They host a podcast, Honey & Co: The Food Sessions, talking to influential guests from the food and drink industry, as well as writing a weekly recipe column for FT Weekend Magazine.
