On 26th October 1610, a funeral pyre was built in Ellezelles for the 38-year-old witch Quintine. In her book of spells, passed down from generation to generation, we found her magic recipes. Today, we share them with you.
If you wander through our beautiful region, don’t forget to rub Quintine’s head when you see her, while saying in your best Walloon accent:
“Houp, houp, riki, riki, rikete, padzeur les haies et les bouchons voles au diable et co pu lo”.
Then make a wish and it will be granted.
