On today’s episode of A Time And A Plate, we find ourselves baking a witch’s cake on the eve of the Salem Witch Trials. We journey to the 17th century American frontier, on the cresting wave of early Protestantism, and the pervasive tide of English folk magic pulling us back. Magic, was alive and real in the Early Modern Era, and magical food could be used to heal, protect, or kill.Later in the episode we chat with Danielle Bell of De Porres Dinner Series Los Angeles-based dinner series and catering company.
