We heat the milk. We mix the sugar with the salep, we add this mixture to the milk and let it boil in a low temperature. We mix it continuously so that it won’t get stuck on the pot. As soon as it is well boiled, we remove it from the stovetop. When it is cold enough, we mix the mixture again and put it in the fridge. After 20 minutes, we sprinkle it with the grated cooking chocolate and the ground caramelized almond kernel.

The Symbolism of Objects Held by Saints in Byzantine Iconography

In this article you will read about the symbolism of various objects in Byzantine Iconography, such as the cross and the Church held by the Saints, the open palms, the Gospel, the scrolls, the rod, medical objects, as well as the choices of colors. Orthodox hagiography reveals to Christians the unearthly, which transcends the boundaries of our physical world. It functions as a way of communication and seeks to highlight the new world that will come with the Kingdom of God. This can be expressed through the icons of the Saints, where characteristics such as schematization, simplicity and differentiation prevail.
