3: This magazine has been written by students between 9 and 12 ages of Gregorio`s Marañon Primary School during the school year 2009-2010. This is the first edition of a project which came from an idea during Information and Communication Technologies (I.C.T.s) classes. After this, the task was changed into a small project for our students to investigate, work together and contribute their ideas in order to inform the students and teachers about our activities, news and related events of our school, our city and our country, We`d like to thank everyone who have put their grand of sand and worked in this project. We hope you like it so we can continue in the future with this labor. Gabriel Moreno Gardeñas I.C.T`s Teacher

24: ORIGIN OF MARZIPAN As in many countries happen, over the years claim the origin of many of their food. In this case we will explain the two contrasting versions of history (Toledo and Sicilian origin). The appearance of Marzipan takes place in the eleventh century, between 850 and 900, though its disclosure was delayed until two centuries later. In the year 1150 (the reign of Alfonso VII) appointed a paste of sugar and honey as "Regio Dessert" in the culinary description of the chroniclers of the time. Today, this dessert is typical of Christmas. It comes from a crushed almond paste. The origin of the word marzipan comes from a version that says the marzipan word comes from the union of the sugar and almond bread bread earning. The word may derive from the Arabic "Manthan Written by David C. and Pablo B. (5th grade)

25: ORIGIN OF HORCHATA The horchata (in Valencian, orxata of Xufa; Orzada Italian and this in turn from the Latin "hordeta", "barley") is a refreshing drink (including dessert), prepared with water, sugar and groundnuts. The groundnuts are small underground tubers shaped knots that come from the roots of countersunk sedge (Cyperus esculentus) called for the shape of its fruit like hazelnut. In Spain, and especially in Valencia, horchata is made from tiger nuts (Cyperus esculentum). Apparently this was already used in ancient Egypt, having found groundnuts as part of the funerary equipment of the pharaohs. Also, Persian and Arabic writers of antiquity mentioned the benefits of digestive and disinfectants of groundnut, then used as a medicinal drink by energy and diuretic considerations .
