During the past few weeks, we have navigated the steep and winding roads into the mountains nearly every day to collect stories, recipes and photographs.
We’ve met cheesemakers, home cooks, a taverna owner, even a cobbler, and every one of them was extraordinarily generous–inviting us into their homes or establishments and making us feel as welcome as if we were family or old, dear friends.
We plan to share the results of our travels here, but for the next week or two, while we sort through our notes and images, I’ll post a few photos–glimpses into a world we have felt fortunate to be a part of, if only for a fleeting but beautiful time.
More photos–as well as recipes and stories–to come. As ever, thank you for reading The Shepherd and the Olive Tree.
