Bengoʹdi

.

A wonderful country where “they tie the vines with sausages, where you may buy a fat goose for a penny and have the giblets given into the bargain. In this place there is a mountain of Parmesan cheese, and people’s employment is making cheesecakes and macaroons. There is also a river which runs Malmsey wine of the very best quality. (Boccaccio: Eighth Day, Novel iii.)
