Mmmm. Fine stew indeed.

2014-11-24 Rerun commentary: It's got vegetables in it too. They used to be in the ground. (Probably turnips. Medieval vegetables always seem to be turnips.*)

I like the idea that the local speciality is actually so generic and nondescript that it can be expressed in just a single word of four letters.

* Since of course all the good vegetables only came to Europe after the discovery of the Americas. Potatoes, beans, pumpkins, chili peppers, corn, tomatoes**.

** Yes, yes, I know...
