ANTWERP, January 16 (Reuters) - Recent studies in "The Adin Research Center for Relationship Welfare" have shown that the non-nutrient Retro Style Jewelry (RSJ) -- long viewed as a nonessential -- has now been established as the first new vitamin discovered since a long time. The new vitamin can positively affect relationship dips and is named vitAdin. According to Adin's Chief researcher Elkan Wijnberg, a regular dose will benefit relationships.

Retro style jewelry - The Retro style was strongly influenced by its predecessor: the Art Deco style. Using the same type and language of geometrical shapes but with bolder heavier lines, shapes and stones. Typical for the Retro style is its imitation of three dimensional folds of fabric with the ribbon bow as its most popular motif, often highlighted in the center with a calibré cut ruby or sapphire knot (mostly lab-produced stones were used) and diamonds in various cuts as white accents.

That gold regained its popularity during the Retro period was due to the fact that platinum was not available to the goldsmiths and jewellers since this was being used for the war effort. This was the main reason that during the Retro period different colors of gold became popular - yellow gold was combined with rose gold and green gold in striking combinations. In France goldsmiths worked with no less then 27 shades of colors of gold!

The most popular gemstones seen in the Retro style are aquamarine, citrine, topaz, large cabochon-cut rubies and sapphires (including star stones), golden beryl, peridots and tourmaline. Not uncommonly, gems used were exceptionally large in order to reflect the scale of the jewelry.

La nouvelle cuisine d'Adin
proudly presents:
Adin's Epiphany Present Pie

One of the customs for the 6th of January (also called “Epiphany” or “Twelfth Night”) is to bake a cake and hide something in it. The one who gets the piece of the pie with the hidden object can call himself King or Queen for that Day.

This folkloric practice was already used by the old Romans as a ritual at the Festival of Saturn. It was a time of celebration, visits to friends, and gift-giving, particularly of wax candles, and earthenware figurines.

Depending on the place one is in, the hidden object can be a bean (England), almond (Belgium), a little porcelain doll (France), and obviously a piece of antique jewelry when having been in The Garden of Adin.


Ingredients for a 6 - 8 portions pie:
-
- 200 grams butter at room temperature -
-
- (plus a little bit of butter for buttering the baking tin) -
-
- 200 grams almond powder -
-
- 200 grams sugar -
-
- 4 eggs -
-
- 7 tablespoons self raising flower -
-
- 100 grams dark chocolate -
-
- 1 piece of antique jewelry -
-


Method:
-
Stir up the butter, almond powder and sugar
till smooth and creamy.
-
Add the eggs one by one.
-
Add 6 spoons of flower with a wooden spoon.
-
Divide the dough in two.
-
Melt the chocolate (2 minutes in microwave).
-
Stir the melted chocolate in one half of the dough.
-
Butter the cake tin (diameter ± 26 cm or 10 inch)
and disperse with the remaining flower.
-
Randomly scoop the dough without the chocolate
into the cake tin.
-
Add the chocolate dough.
-
Shovel the two from bottom to top
without really mixing the two colors.
-
Add the antique piece of jewelry (if heath-resistant)
and smoothen the top.
-
If the piece of antique jewelry is not heath-resistant
than hide it in pie when pie is cooled off after baking.
-
Bake the pie within 35 to 45 min.
in a prewarmed oven at 170°C (or 340° F).
-
The pie is ready when a knife (or knitting needle)
that you insert is dry when taken out.
-


Serve:
Best secretly mark the part of the pie with the jewel.
So you are sure to give your loved one the right piece.
