Dusty brambles encroach on the weathered stone threshold of the hut which is hidden deep in the forest. A clove scented smoke wafts through a crack in the door. Peering inside, you strain to see across the dimly lit room - the outline of an old woman sitting at the hearth comes into view. She intently stirs a brew releasing aromas bay leaf, cassis, tobacco and plum skin. A slight turn of her head makes you shrink back into the shadows, distrusting your own eyes.
