She is the author of several renowned cookery books, and it is Honey from a
Weed, published in 1986, which forms the subject of this discussion. Much more
than a mere collection of recipes, this book is a celebration of the simple
Mediterranean way of life, presented as the field notes of an anthropologist who
has “gone native”. The book was subtitled "Fasting and Feasting in Tuscany,
Catalonia, the Cyclades and Apulia". These are the places she lived from the late
'60s after ...

Honey from a Weed: Fasting and Feasting in Tuscany, Catalonia, the Cyclades
and Apulia, Patience Gray (Harper & Row, 1986). This is one of those books I
