“In winter here, there are no asparagus from Peru, no grapes from Chile. What’s available, primarily, is what grows (nearby).” From the book “Under the Tuscan Sun” by Frances Mayes.

“Round here you don’t decide what you want to eat first, and then go out and get it: you go to your orto (garden) first, see what there’s a lot of, and base your next few dinners around that.” From the book by Annie Hawes “Extra Virgin; amongst the olive groves of Liguria”
