Honey & Co: The Food Talks


Honey & Co: The Food Talks

For anyone unable to attend our food talks at Honey & Spice, they are now available to subscribe to as a podcast. Held at Honey & Spice in front of a small group of guests, we invite the people we admire from the food world to come over – cooks, waiters, makers, writers, drinkers, thinkers – we have something to eat, a glass of wine and they tell us their story of making a life in food.

The first episode features Bee Wilson who came over to talk to us about how our food habits are created – what makes us like or dislike certain foods, how we use food to set ourselves apart or come together – and most importantly how we control and change habits.

Available on iTunes or on Soundcloud.

We have more dates to let you know about in our series of evening food talks at Honey & Spice, our food store at 52 Warren St.

All tickets cost £20 including wine and a bite to eat made by Sarit & Itamar for everyone to try. Signed books can be bought on the night.


Allan Jenkins will be joining us at 7pm on Wednesday 7th June for a talk about his memoir Plot 29. A portrait of a childhood spent in and out of children’s homes and his rescue by foster parents, who gave him a life-long love of gardening, Allan later searched for his birth family, for his real name, and for a sense of belonging. The story unfolds around a year on the allotment, which is shared with a different sort of family. We will also talk about Allan’s editorship of Observer Food Monthly, share a glass of wine and have a taste of seasonal vegetables from the plot.

Tickets are £20 and include wine and food. Send us an email to book your place. We will have copies of Plot 29 available to purchase on the night.


Laura Jackson & Alice Levine will come to our food shop at 7pm on Wednesday 28th June to talk about their book Round To Ours and share what they learned as supper club hosts about how to create an unfussy, laid back evening with dishes that’ll keep those around your table wanting to come back for more.

Tickets are £20 and include wine and a taste of some of the recipes from the book, which we’ll be cooking up for you to try.

Send us an email to book your place. Copies of Round To Ours will be available to purchase on the night.
