Fennel Pie

This pastry is filled with fennel fronds. Seasonal herbs and greens, many of them wild, are an integral part of Cretan cuisine.

Jon Miller of Homelands Productions traveled to the Greek island of Crete to find out why its obesity rate has increased over the years. He took these photos along the way.
