Rumour has it that this boot once belonged to one of the infamous witches of Salem. Years ago, our Rich Uncle got into a squabble with her over who made the best duck wings. Dear Uncle's was a traditional family recipe passed down to him by a charming innkeeper somewhere in Eastern Europe, and naturally he thought his should should be the winner.
To decide who made the most delicious duck wings, Uncle and the witch hosted a cook-off dinner featuring both of their takes on this classic dish, and lo and behold, our Uncle emerged victorious! The witch was so angry that she tossed her boot at his head. Delighted, he had the boot coated in gold, and he's kept it in his collection this whole time as a symbol of his victory.
Don't believe that it's the best? Try it yourself!
