Within this book you'll find no recipes, but something cooked up just for you; you'll find stories ? stories of magic, healing, and hearth, of feasts and fasts and fairy tales. Of poisoned apples, bewitching gingerbread, and seeing the future in a teacup...

Discover the fantastic folklore and healing properties of everyday foods: fruits, vegetables, honey, bread and nuts.

Delight in food customs and rituals from ancient Babylon, Egypt, Greece and Rome.

Meet cunning folk, herbalists, ale-wives, beer goddesses and the many faces of the Kitchen Witch through the ages.

Journey through food for every seasonal festival on the Wheel of the Year.

Enjoy fairy and folk tales of witches and saints in Scandinavia, floating apples and snapdragon in England, potato-wolves in Germany, tatty bogles and angels who drink whisky in Scotland, and a rather surprising prevalence of pancakes...

In Sarah's signature style of weaving together the magical, this exciting new book will touch on a myriad of modalities in a journey lined with folklore, fairytale and much, much food!

Praise for Sarah Robinson

Like a long, deep, beatific exhale, this gentlest book envelops you from the opening page – as soft as it is powerful, as accepting as it is radical – a treatise, toolkit and treasure, for all women who seek to re-member their nature.

Another beautiful and instructive book for these weird modern times from Sarah Robinson. A delight to read, Sarah is now a trusted resource in my empowering library.
Alice B. Grist, author of Dirty & Divine and The Book of Tarot

Sarah Robinson has a special talent for taking disparate and complex ancient systems and making them, not only accessible, but making their similarities so glaringly obvious that you wonder why you didn’t see them before.
