This is our food, this is our restaurant - fresh fruit and vegetables, wild honey, big bunches of herbs, crunchy salads, smoky lamb, bread straight from the oven, old-fashioned stews, Middle Eastern traditions, falafel, dips, and plenty of tahini on everything.

Squeeze in, grab a chair, ignore or enjoy the noise, the buzz, and tuck in. Leave room for dessert - cheesecake, a marzipan cookie with a Turkish coffee. Let us look after you - welcome to Honey & Co.

There is a cheering warmth here, from the quinces on the cover to the self-deprecating stories about running a small business. Above all, I commend this book because my kitchen has never smelt as good when cooking from it. — Food Book of the Year - The Sunday Times
It's the kind of stuff you'd love to dish up to your pals and bask in the resulting praise... It's food you would always be happy to eat. — Guardian
The ingredient that is in every mouthful, that isn't on the menu, is the huge dollop of home-made love... This food comes from a husband and wife making their own small business from a tiny kitchen and small dining room, and everything in it is infused with a warm hug of hospitality. — The Sunday Times
This is indeed food made by people who like to eat. It is food that cares less about how it looks than how it tastes ... It feels like an act of love. — Guardian
I'm off to Honey & Co on Warren Street for what I'm going to describe dreamily as Middle Eastern soul food, largely as I can't think of a better way to explain the restorative value of letting husband-and-wife team Itamar Srulovich and Sarit Packer beckon you in and feed you ... it feels exactly like wandering into a little family-run room, after a snoozy day sunbathing on holiday, and quickly cottoning on that you've found a winner. — Evening Standard
Here, the food is as much about creating an atmosphere as it is about any individual dish, a new way of looking at Middle Eastern cuisine, subtler, more modern. — STELLA, Telegraph
What began life as a modest neighbourhood restaurant in Bloomsbury has since attracted a staunch following with its heartwarming dishes from the Middle East. Sarit Packer and Itamar Srulovich, the couple who run Honey & Co. have now written a book that captures - with sympathetic honesty - the love and toil involved. — Harpers Bazaar
The lure of this book about an eatery is clear: the owners' stories that reflect on love, immigration and identity are endearing and universal, and the book is heavily seasoned with them... If you love Honey & Co, this book is a must-read. — Time Out, Cookbook of the Week
It's not unusual for a book to grow from the seed of a restaurant. Most will start off telling the reader about the restaurant, the author, the inspiration and philosophy. Few will tell you how the owners fell in love over oven-fresh burek and pigeon stuffed with pine nut rice. How they sneered at each others introductions to "Haifa's best falafel" and "Jerusalem's best falafel", each secretly enjoying both. Few will introduce you to the staff, from the loveable front-of-house Rachael to "sweet, funny" Carlos the kitchen porter... Each section of this book is lightly spiced with just the right amount of anecdote and memory. It's blindingly obvious that hearts and souls and a great deal of love have gone into it. That's not something I come across too often in a cookbook. It also made me laugh out loud more than once. — Saffron Strands
The recipes are as reliable, imaginative and savoury as you'd hope from Ottolenghi alumni, but the other big draw is the narrative. The couple met in a kitchen, and haven't stopped sharing their favourite foods with each other and the people around them ever since. — Guardian
The modest subtitle of Honey & Co's debut cookbook, Food from the Middle East, published this month, doesn't begin to capture the richness and variety of the recipes - sardines cured in vine leaves, oxtail sofrito, their celebrated feta and honey cheesecake. But it's not just about the superb dishes: the book also captures a sense of place, bottling the personality of the tiny, 10-table restaurant on London's Warren Street that won last year's Observer Food Monthly award for best newcomer. — Killian Fox, Observer Food Monthly
Food lovers have been waiting for this book ever since it was first commissioned... it is full of enchanting Middle Eastern dishes... This is Arabian Nights food delivered with passion and verve. — Saga Magazine
It's the kind of stuff you'd love to dish up to your pals and bask in the resulting praise... It's food you would always be happy to eat. — Marina O’Loughlin, Guardian
Falafel fans rejoice! You'll find three recipes for this Middle Eastern favourite in Honey & Co's book, pluse the full complement of mezze dishes, dips, salads, breads and reich slow-cooked dishes, such as the melting lamb shawarma that I made. These recipes suit all abilities, written in an accessible sytle with mouth-watering photographs. — Julie Shepherd, Square Meal
This is indeed food made by people who like to eat. It is food that cares less about how it looks than how it tastes ... It feels like an act of love. — Jay Rayner, Guardian
The friendly yet knowledgeable vibe of the restaurant glows from the pages too. It's packed with mouth-watering recipes: pickles, salads, slow-cooked stews and show-stopping puds. This is a book to treasure. — Independent on Sunday
Middle Eastern Cooking at its most inspiring. Brilliantly useful and exquisitely designed. — BBC Good Food Magazine
Itamar Srulovich and Sarit Packer, chef patrons of Fitzrovia's Honey & Co, also published their - very romantic - volume of recipes rolled up with the story of how they came to be one of London's foodie sensations. — Jewish Chronicle
I'm smitten with the sweet spice mix from Honey & Co, a warm, heady mix including cardamom, fennel seed, mahleb and cinnamon. A teaspoon sprinkled on porridge is so satisfying it can almost persuade me to forgo sugar. — Stella

Savoring the World

Harold Mcgee
Authors:
Harold Mcgee

"Marcel Proust's famous madeleine surprised his narrator with a strong emotion that he traced back to an idyllic, forgotten time in childhood. My first taste of grouse as part of a traditional British lunch seemed full of significance even though there had been no grouse in my past, and it was as if I were touching something essential in myself and in the world. That mystifying surpise set me off on a search for the latest insights of sense and flavour."Harold McHeeSavouring the World is a wide-ranging survey of taste and smell - two senses that have a powerful but largely overlooked influence on our everyday lives. This book will not only explain how these senses truly work, but also how to enjoy them more actively to transform your relationship with flavour.Harold McGee's acclaimed On Food & Cooking won the André Simon Food Book of the Year and is a masterpiece of gastronomic writing; a rich, addictive blend of chemistry, history and anecdote that no self-respecting foodie or cook can afford to be without. Savouring the World promises to intrigue and amaze foodies just as much.'McGee is the man who transformed most curious people's understanding about food.' Guardian Weekend

The Arab of the Future 2

Riad Sattouf
Authors:
Riad Sattouf

THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED CONTINUATION OF RIAD SATTOUF'S INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED GRAPHIC MEMOIR.THE UNFORGETTABLE STORY OF AN EXTRAORDINARY CHILDHOOD.'A MASTERPIECE' - Posy SimmondsThe first volume of Riad Sattouf's The Arab of the Future introduced young Riad as his family shuttled back and forth between France and the Middle East; here is the continuation of his heart-rending, darkly comic story. Now settled in his father's village of Ter Maaleh near Homs, Riad finally begins school, where he dedicates himself to becoming a true Syrian in the country of the dictator Hafez Al-Assad. Told simply yet with devastating effect, Riad's story takes in the sweep of Middle Eastern politics of the 1980s, the ascendency of religion, and the persistence of poverty, but it is steered by acutely observed small moments: the daily sadism of his schoolteachers, the cruelty and vulnerability of his fellow students, and the obsequiousness of his father in the company of those close to the regime. And as the family strains to fit in, one chilling, barbaric act drives the Sattoufs to take the most dramatic of steps. Immediate and gripping, The Arab of the Future 2 once again reveals the inner workings of a tormented country and a tormented family, delivered through Riad Sattouf 's dazzlingly original graphic style.'The graphic novel has its canon: Art Spiegelman, Marjane Satrapi, Joe Sacco. Edging towards this company comes Riad Sattouf's excellent childhood memoir of tyranny' GuardianTranslated by Sam Taylor.***THE ARAB OF THE FUTURE - THE INTERNATIONAL SENSATION***#1 BESTSELLER IN FRANCE | GUARDIAN 'BEST GRAPHIC BOOKS OF 2015' PICK | NYTIMES EDITOR'S CHOICE | SELECTED AS ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY LATIMES, SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE, AMAZON.COM, PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, NPR | WINNER OF THE FAUVE D'OR PRIZE FOR BEST ALBUM OF THE YEAR AT THE ANGOULÊME INTERNATIONAL COMICS FESTIVAL | WINNER OF THE LATIMES BOOK PRIZE FOR GRAPHIC NOVELS | NOMINATED FOR 'BEST REALITY-BASED WORK' AT THE EISNER AWARDS

Rachel Roddy

Winner of the André Simon Food Book Award 2015'Of course I thought Rome was glorious, but I didn't want to stay. A month, three at most, then I'd take a train back to Sicily to finish the clockwise journey I'd interrupted, before moving even further southwards...'Instead, captivated by the exhilarating life of Testaccio, the wedge-shaped quarter of Rome that centres round the old slaughterhouse and the bustling food market, Rachel decided to rent a flat and live there. Thus began an Italian adventure that's turned into a brand new life. FIVE QUARTERS charts a year in Rachel's small kitchen, shopping, cooking, eating and writing, capturing a uniquely domestic picture of life in this vibrant, charismatic city. Combining Rachel's love of Italian food and cooking with a strong nostalgia for home and memories of growing up in England, this is a cookbook to read in bed as well as to use in the kitchen.

Andrew Dargue

'The food is creative, beautifully presented and exciting.' Guardian'To us, the fact our cooking is vegetarian is incidental - we just like to eat good food. We love to reinvent classic dishes, create new flavour combinations, source unusual ingredients and occasionally we use a microwave because well, why not?' From the start, Andrew and Donna's rule was, no pasta bake and no vegetable curry. They set up Vanilla Black as a restaurant with a mission - to reinvent expectations about what it means to eat vegetarian food. It's all about the flavour, the first bite that intrigues, the surprising, the unusual, the recipes your friends will want to steal. From Jerusalem artichoke, white wine and thyme pie to a reinvention of classic tomatoes on toast, from Savoy cabbage pudding to broad bean and lemon cheesecake, from smoky baked beans to Marmite new potatoes, and from parsnip cake with Horlicks frosting to cherry Bakewell tart with marzipan custard, this surprising and inventive cookbook will change the way you think about food - and leave you wanting more. Vanilla Black restaurant is co-owned by Andrew Dargue, head chef, and his partner Donna Conroy, who runs front of house. www.vanillablack.co.uk @vanillablack1

Yotam Ottolenghi: 'Reading Maunika's book feels as though you're actually sitting in an Indian family kitchen, sharing stories and recipes. I've been inspired by her to make my own paneer and to play with pickled watermelon rind. Delightful!' Growing up in Mumbai, Maunika Gowardhan learned the secrets of home cooking, Indian-style.
