In which we discover what happens if you don’t share your pizzas, that singing ducks make excellent messengers and how perfect parsnips can keep memories alive.
This is another fantastic story from Giambattista Basile’s Tale of Tales. I have already explored the history of these volumes in my Cat Cinderella episode but here is a quick recap for anyone who missed it. This book is a set of tales within a frame story of a wronged bride. The volumes of the book were published between 1634-36 and predate the books of literary fairy tales from Charles Perrault in France and the Grimm Brothers in Germany.
Today's Story is Two Little Pizzas
Today's Recipe is Roasted Parsnips & Green Sauce
You can find the original text of the story and the books I used to research this podcast in the Further Reading Section of my blog article.
