Honey and Co: The Food Sessions



We're back with the third episode in our series about our new book CHASING SMOKE, and this week we'll be sharing travel stories and recipes from our trip to Gaziantep in Southern Turkey in search of the perfect kebab.

In this episode we cook our version of Adana kebab, a recipe that is very famous in Turkey and that every restaurant has their own version of; we talk to our friend and photographer Patricia Niven who accompanied us on all our trips; and we catch up with Erdem Hösükoğlu who so kindly showed us around Gaziantep in 2019 and got us into all the best kitchens!

We talk about Sarit's control-freak-ness when it comes to boarding passes; the pride, passion and amazing produce we came across in Gaziantep; and we road test our new ziir knife that we picked up on the trip and have been too scared to use since. Enjoy.
