Waterstones Says

The chefs and proprietors of grill house Honey & Smoke celebrate the delicious taste of the Levant with a host of recipes that make the most of the scents and flavours of fire-fuelled cuisine.

Chosen for Jamie Oliver's Cookbook Club September 2021

The award-winning Honeys are back with more delicious dishes from the Middle East, and this time their focus is firmly on the grill. Join Sarit and Itamar on a journey filled with flavour and fire as they visit their favourite cities collecting recipes, stories and the best of culinary culture along the way.

Fire has always seasoned Sarit and Itamar's food - both at home and in their own grill house, Honey & Smoke - and now you too will fall in love with this comforting, no-fuss, fare. Organised into five ingredient-led chapters (Fruit & Vegetables; Fish & Seafood; Birds; Lamb & Other Meats; and Bread & Unmissables), it couldn't be easier to create a simple mouth-watering meal for two or a joyful feast for your friends and family. From grilled peaches with almond tahini and charred endive, figs with manouri cheese and pomegranate sauce, prawns in honey and fresh coriander, and smoked short ribs, the scent and flavour created by the meeting of heat, wood, flesh and plant will never fail to lend your food a special, magical quality.

You'll also find five city features on Alexandria, Egypt; Amman, Jordan; Acre, Israel; Adana, Turkey; and Thessaloniki, Greece, all bursting with inspiration from the best fire-fuelled eateries each destination has to offer - from the greatest grill houses to the humblest roadside kebab joints, balcony culture and open fires on shores. Complete with culinary souvenirs including beautiful ingredient combinations, age-old tricks and techniques, curious kitchen tools, and clever 'rainy day' advice on how to recreate the dishes using a conventional oven or stovetop, heat the coals, come together and cook with the flavour of smoke.

'If you're still slinging big lumps of meat on the barbecue this summer, you need this book, because you're missing something vital' - The Financial Times

“Brings the Mediterranean to the UK”

Love the fact that while the book is primarily aimed at cooking outdoors over a BBQ, almost all the recipes have an alternative indoor cooking method.

The Chicken. With yoghurt and saffron is especially addictive.... More
