Plated Earth Food Fables are original short historical fiction stories about produce and its ability to connect people, culture, and history. This Food Fable is about a young boy, teasingly nicknamed “Willy Rotten” by his peers, whose father comforts him by telling the story of how giants once roamed the earth, thanks to the medlar fruit. The giants’ origin story is inspired by the works of 16th century author, François Rabelais, which chronicle the adventures of two giants, Gargantua and his son Pantagruel.
