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.
