Speaking to an old gypsy named Levi, he explained to me that when they were young they used to eat hedgehogs. They simply rolled them in clay put them among the ashes of the fire, when the clay was baked so was the hedgehog. They then removed the fired clay together with the spines of the hedgehog and ate it. I asked Levi what it tasted like, inevitably he described it as being similar to …………………Chicken!
