When you’re in Rio Grande, you might find yourself searching for a diamond or a necklace.
But the jewelry in the dishes of the city’s hotels and motels, which are often stocked with gold and other gems, is a bit different.
Rio Grande is the jewel of South America, and the jewelry of the wealthy.
That makes the dishes in its hotels and restaurants — the ones where the rich can get fancy — a special treat.
These dishes are often decorated with gold.
One restaurant in the resort city of Santa Cruz, for example, decorates the tables with gold leaf and gold studs.
The dish is decorated with silver, the color of gold.
The gold and silver can make for a stunning display.
And the dishes are also often decorated by people of high status, such as the mayor of Rio Grande.
The dishes are known as jardinas de rojo (royal dishes), or jardines de rojos (royalist dishes).
Jardins de rojas are made by local people who know how to create fine gold- and silver-based jewelry, said Ana Ponce de Leon, a chef who has been making these dishes since 2006.
They usually include gold and gems, and often have a lot of food, like chicken, beef or pork, and are sometimes accompanied by a cocktail.
Ponce, who owns the chef’s salon at the Hotel Santa Cruz in Rio de Janeiro, said that the dishes can range from the simple to the elaborate.
Sometimes, the chef will add spices and garnishes to make the dishes taste like an exotic locale.
Sometimes they’re even made by children.
Some of these dishes have a special name, like la máximo, which means the masterpieces of a jeweler.
Pascual de Souza, who runs the chef-restaurant El Chaco in Santa Cruz as well as the chef at the hotel El Pilar in Santa Teresa, said the dishes that he cooks are usually decorated with different materials, like gold, silver or copper.
For example, the dishes made with gold in Santa Ana, a city in the Andes, are decorated with diamonds and gold leaf.
Pregnant women and the elderly can also choose from gold and copper, said Ponce.
The golden dishes can be so beautiful, that you might not even notice the food is made of gold, he said.
For many people, however, these dishes are not just about decoration.
The wealthy can enjoy the food as much as the locals.
“For them, this is a very special occasion,” Ponce said.
Pisa and Rome are the other cities that offer dishes made from gold.
For the wealthy, it can be a luxury, and it is a lot more expensive, but they enjoy it, he added.
The best part is that they are still able to eat the food, Ponce added.
“I think we are a very happy people here.”
When the dishes come from Rio Grande and Santa Cruz they are usually made with precious metals such as gold and rubies.
Paseñes de roja are also called carat plates, because they usually have gold and diamonds embedded into them.
In Rio Grande they are also decorated with jewels, such a ruby for a man.
They are usually served with a large glass of red wine.
The chef can use whatever material he wants.
He may use gold, rubies, precious metals, even gold leaf, Paseña said.
He can even use a combination of the two.
