Saint Narcis' butler

The fantastic story about the cook who invented the mint soup.

Long, long time ago, a very fat and old woman lived in Girona. She did not look as old because she had a tender skin. She was a wonderful cook , she invented some dishes such as goose with pears or stuffed apples. Once she spread a rumour about Saint Narcis, and he punished her. She became a poor and helpless woman. Later on she regreted about what she did and she spent her time on cooking mint soup for poor people in front of the Cathedral's door. When she died, Girona's people carried her to her tomb and they realised that even she was very fat, her body was very light.
