Great food reference ... in Modest Mussorgsky's
Pictures at an Exhibition -- No. 9 "Избушка на курьих ножках"
(Баба-Яга) [Izbushka na kur'ikh nozhkakh (Baba-Yaga)]
(Russian: The Hut on Hen’s Legs (Baba-Yaga))

gone about the countryside in a mortar and pestle ...
she also lived in a hut on chicken legs.

Modest Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition,

Baba Yaga,
