Manage episode 290907909 series 2850417
In which we discover that life can be interesting if you accept the unusual, that a collop can be many things and that sometimes acquiring a prince can be a lot of effort. This tale also involves an amazing shoe collection, ice lakes, glass mountains, a prince who sleeps soundly, a bull with unlimited food and drink in his ears, magical fruit and incredible jewelry.
This tale for this episode is The Black Bull of Norroway, a wonderful and joyful folk tale with a moral that slaps you round the face rather than whispering in your ear but it seems like an appropriate one in these tricky times.
The episode recipe is Bacon, Cheese & Mushroom Sandwich, excellent recovery food for the morning after the night before.
