PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS

THE HOLY SCALLOP

The scallop shell is known as the emblem of the crusaders of the Order of St. James (or St. Jacques), one of Jesus’ 12 apostles. There is a legend that connects the two, being that he once saved a knight covered in scallops from drowning. The variation of that tale is that while his remains were being transported from Jerusalem to Spain, a knight’s horse fell into the water, emerging covered in scallops.

The scallop then became the symbol of St. James, and Medieval Christians would often have a scallop shell symbol on their clothing when they made the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in Spain, to the shrine of St. James.
