In A Tasty Tale two hungry children are abandoned in the woods by their mother and father. After thinking they are well and truly lost, they stumble across a delicious house made of gingerbread and a beautiful witch who has ulterior motives. As they fight to survive, Hansel finds he's not as brave as he boasts he is, however Gretel finds she is bolder than she thought she could be.
