Recorded on Monday evenings at our food store Honey & Spice in front of a small crowd, 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.
Caroline Eden & Eleanor Ford, authors of Samarkand: Recipes & Stories from Central Asia & The Caucasus
One of the most fascinating cookbooks published in the last few years, Samarkand explores one of the most diverse and interesting food cultures in the world, one little known in Britain. The region is abundant with produce and the cooking has been influenced by everyone from the Tajiks to Turks to Russians and Koreans, creating a melting pot of distinctive dishes.
