In December 2013, The Gentle Author of Spitalfields Life & I went to visit Maria Pellicci & her son Nevio in Bethnal Green. In the kitchen at the back of their darkened cafe, they make the Christmas ravioli together, as Maria has done since 1962. To read The Gentle Author's report, click here.
A belated post - early last year, I managed to invite myself along with Honey & Co.'s Sarit & Itamar when they took some of their wonderful kitchen team to Israel for research. The itinerary was clear - eating. Over four days, we must have sampled (& discussed in detail) a multitude of different pitas, hummus & tahinis. We ate shakshuka in Jerusalem, roast cauliflower in Tel Aviv, baklava in Acre & a fire pit lunch on Mount Carmel. Thank you for including me, Honeys!
