Studio Ghibli films always make us hungry, and Earwig and the Witch goes the extra mile by putting tasty British dishes at the forefront. If you’re envious of the Mandrake’s curated menus, you can try them for yourself thanks to a new cookbook!
Ghibli Dining Table: Earwig and the Witch brings to life some of the treats seen throughout the movie — including the local Boy Scouts’ top-tier fried bread and the shepherd’s pie made at Earwig’s orphanage.
