After her children grew up and left home, Sophie Grigson found herself living alone and drawing closer to her 60th birthday so she decided to sell or give away most of her belongings, pack up her car and drive to Puglia on her own to start a new life. She had visited Southern Italy many times over the years but didn’t know anyone there or the local lifestyle; this collection of food writing, stories and recipes brings to life the region, its food and the local characters that she meets along the way.
