Time Is Away: Honey from a Weed part 2

London, 06.09.21

In the early 1960s, food writer Patience Gray fell in love with the Flemish sculptor Norman Mommens. Together, they embarked on a Mediterranean odyssey, which lasted until her death in 2005. Honey from a Weed (published 1986) relates her experiences of fasting and feasting, deeply immersed in peasant food ways and the harsh but magical landscapes of Puglia, Catalonia and Naxos.
