Original Adin Recipe from the Middle Ages!


To those familiar with the Adin Weekly Herald it does not come as a surprise that we are also very much interested in cooking. It's not even a bold statement when we say that there is such a thing as "La Cuisine d'Adin". So it happened that when browsing through some antique cooking books from the Middle Ages we ran into some original Adin old school recipes. We thought it would be only fair to share this with you.
Enjoy!

Adin Fine Antique Jewellery Information: Precious Cross from the 17th Century

Adin Fine Antique Jewellery Information

Precious Cross from the 17th Century

As if a guardian angel has bestowed upon this yellow gold cross with a value of 18K and possibly higher, this inestimable Iberian (Spain or Portugal) pendant and brooch with 23 old table rose cut diamonds withstands since the 17th century.

Except for the grand pear shaped suspension, the primary shape of a diamond ascending from an eight lobed dome embellished with mille grains repeats around the fully diamond-encrusted centre. The airy presence of this jewel is a merit of the curling wirework from which leaflets sprout in between the intersections.

Opal
A touch of history ...

 
The mysterious opal can evoke as many convictions and superstitions, as it can twinkle colours.

In the Arabic world, it was said that opals fall from the heavens during lightning storms. The Romans thought that this one gemstone beheld the power of all gemstones, because it displays all of their different colours at once. Still, it took only one novel from the 1800s by Sir Walter Scott to make people think of this stone as bad luck.

Although we wouldn’t dare to tell you what to believe, we do recommend this jewel to all fair ladies. It is namely accepted since medieval times that an opal has got the power to preserve the colour of blond hair. And let me punctuate that we are too respectful and respectable to make jokes about blondes.
