I promised in this month's baking thread to do a "cooking from" thread for one of my new favorite books. I've made a few things from it that I've instantly wanted to make again right after the last crumb has been consumed--something I wish I could say about more of my cookbooks! I hope some of you will join me here to comment on/review the recipes that we bake.
Honey & Co: The Baking Book by Itamar Srulovich and Sarit Packer
"Our day is marked by what comes out of the pastry section, and there's always something good on the way: sticky buns full of cherries and pistachios in the morning; a loaf of rich dough rolled with chocolate, hazelnuts and cinnamon that has been proving since dawn and comes out of the oven fresh for elevenses. Lunch is a crisp, crumbly shell of pastry filled with spiced lamb or burnt aubergine, and at teatime there are cheesecakes and fruit cakes, small cakes and massive cookies - so many cakes that it's hard to choose one. (There's no need to worry, whatever you choose will be great!) After dinner there might be poached peaches with roses or something more traditional, sweet and salty Knafe drenched in orange blossom syrup, or maybe just a small piece of fresh marzipan. There's something sweet, something in the oven for everyone, all day long - welcome to Honey & Co."
About the Authors
Itamar Srulovich was born and raised in Jerusalem, cooking since the age of five and trained on the job in various places in Tel-Aviv. Itamar worked as the head chef under successful restauranteur Yotam Ottolenghi before opening Honey & Co. He is very happily married.
Sarit Packer has been cooking and baking since she was five, trained at Butlers Wharf and at the Orrery under Chris Galvin. Sarit is married quite happily to Itamar Srulovich but keeps her maiden name for obvious reasons.
It looks like the US release (November 2016) has renamed the book to Golden: Sweet & Savory Baked Delights from the Ovens of London's Honey & Co. https://www.amazon.com/dp/0316284327/...
