Join Sarit Packer and Itamar Srulovich of Honey & Co for an evening of Middle Eastern cooking at Leiths. Relax with a glass of wine as Sarit and Itamar cook up five delicious Middle Eastern dishes with plenty of tasters throughout, and chat to our guest chefs as they cook for tips, tricks and kitchen stories. 

As the husband and wife team behind the established Honey & Co, there is no one better to teach you all you need to know about Middle Eastern cuisine. The first Honey & Co restaurant was opened in 2012, and since then Sarit and Itamar have gone on to open their deli Honey & Spice, and their grill house Honey & Smoke. They have also published four cookbooks, which can be found here.
