This print explores the amusing story that supposedly defines the origins of the Bow Wow pie of Painswick in Gloucestershire.
"Once upon a time there were two sisters, each who had a lover from another town. The distance meant their sweethearts visited only very occasionally, but when they did the sisters would bake all sorts of cakes and pies for their arrival to prove what wonderful housewives they would be. However, they soon discovered the irregular visits were because their suitors were really in love with two other maidens from a neighbouring town. As revenge when their suitors came to visit they baked a most marvellous pie. As it was so tasty the men asked for the recipe, only for the sisters to reveal with malice that it was made from puppy dogs. The young men fled in horror leaving the sisters triumphant in their vengeance. These days, the first bow-wow pie, as it has since been named, is celebrated each year on feast day with a fruit pie full of china puppies and a large dog on top."
