Saint Lawrence was an early Roman Christian martyr. Legend holds that he was executed by roasting on a gridiron—the poet Prudentius recounts Saint Lawrence’s words: “I am cooked on this side; turn me over, this side is done.” Obviously, Saint Lawrence is the patron of cooks, chefs, and the restaurant industry. Wear Saint Lawrence’s medal while cooking, especially barbecuing, to ensure your hot dogs and burgers turn out well!
