We – Sarit Packer and Itamar Srulovich – invite the people we most admire from the food world to come over and chat. Cooks, waiters, writers, drinkers, thinkers: we have a glass of wine, something to eat and they tell us the story of making a life in food. The talks are then released as a podcast, a good thing to listen to while you’re cooking your dinner.
Listen out for Season 8, all about our travels around the Levant as part of our research for our new cookbook Chasing Smoke.
Series 5: Makers, Growers and Producers
In series 5 of Honey & Co: The Food Talks we are meeting producers, growers and makers who create some of the essential ingredients cooking. The people you’re going to hear from, supply us, inspire us and improve our cooking. We hope you’ll have fun geeking out with us about all things butter, chocolate, coffee, bread, fruit & veg, olive oil and of course… honey.

Michael Rakowitz, Iraqi-American artist of Fourth Plinth commission ‘The Invisible Enemy Should Not Exist’ and author of upcoming cookbook A House With A Date Palm Will Never Starve, to be released in the summer of 2019. Rakowitz’s Lamassu is made from empty tins of Iraqi date syrup, alluding to the fact that historical monuments are not the only thing destroyed by war; they also decimate local economies, including the industry for date syrup which collapsed as a result of the war.
