.: I love you more than rock’n’roll

English language have much more words than italian, but… when it comes to food you can find weird things: I’m not sure there are two different words for totani and calamari… or they’re both called squid? I don’t know. Anyway… questa ricetta potete farla coi calamari o con i totani, sarà sempre mooooolto buona. You get the kind of squid you like best, results will be nice either way. And we need something good for our body and soul… so let’s go. This recipe takes some (cooking) time, but it’s very simple and anyone can do it.

evo oil – olio evo
onion – cipolla
garlic – aglio
parsley – prezzemolo
sweet paprika – paprica dolce
turmeric – curcuma
ginger – zenzero
pepper – pepe
chili pepper – peperoncino
tomato sauce – salsa di pomodoro
potatoes – patate
Deve cuocere almeno 1 ora, quindi non è una ricetta velocissima. Must cook for at least 1 hour, so it’s not a quick one.

Of course, first you need to mince onion, garlic and parsley

I especially love garlic with fish, so I put a lot of it in the pan

Also you need to have the potatoes ready and of course the rings of squid. Ora siete pronti per fare un quadro astratto in padella: the pan will be your modern art work: put the oil, the onion, the spices and the garlic (last, after the onion is a bit colored)

then put the fish in. Fate rosolare 5 minuti gli anelli nell’olio-aglio-cipolla-spezie

just 5 minutes. Then you will add the tomato sauce and the potatoes

Mix, cover the pan, let it cook for 1 hour. Mescolate, coprite e lasciate cuocere per 1 ora.

You can also make it without potatoes… Sì, potreste anche farli senza patate…

but you’ll regret it ! Ma ve ne pentireste !

Potatoes make it gorgeous…better than rock’n’roll… well, I’m not sure

.: Thank you

Thank you sun, thank you soil, thank you water, and above all, thank you daddy, for this magic. This is dedicated to all of you which can’t walk directly among things growing in the summer…

plums are sooo sweet

pears are good too

you couldn’t cook without tomatoes

love peaches too

and what about chili peppers ?

.: Biscuit Symphony

Maybe my buiscuits are not the best in the world, but you might find ‘em lovely with the right infusion…

…and with the right music: a blend of classic and contemporary: Ian Gillan at the Royal Halbert Hall,
Concerto for group and Orchestra 2nd movement. Take a look at min 4:50

1 egg – 1 uovo
70 gr butter – burro
70 gr sugar – zucchero
120 gr flour – farina
a bit of baking powder – un po’ di lievito per dolci

First melt the butter. Then whip the eggwhite, add the yolk, the sugar, the butter, the baking powder and the flour. Lay the dough and cook in the oven at 170°C for less then 15 minutes.

Then choose the right infusion: I blended blackberry and turmeric

… or you may just crunch your biscuits 🙂

.: Heaven on their minds

At my first year of my second degree I wrote a paper about Jesus Christ Superstar. I’ve been loving this opera since the beginning, but some changed their minds a lot about it during the years. Did you know that Tim Rice was quoted as saying “It happens that we don’t see Christ as God but simply the right man at the right time at the right place” and some people (some traditionalists) thought it was blasphemous? Despite this, Pope Paul VI declared it was a good film and it was just a rock opera, not a theological opera 😀

One of my favourite songs is the warning of Judas to Jesus.. “be careful!” he tells him. But he won’t listen.

And after my favourite rock opera, now my favourite italian opera: pizza 😀

Be careful when you cook it… you might fall in love with it. And did you know Gethsemane (I Only Want to Say) was sang in 1970 by Ian Gillan (Deep Purple) ?

Some masterpieces always go together 😀

.: Black coffee

Well, actually I don’t like black coffee as much as I love dark chocolate, but I still like to play with coffee in the milk foam 😀

and I love Beth & Joe songs really much !

be’ non so cosa preferisco tra Beth e un tortino al cioccolato….

non credo riuscirete a capirlo guardando questo blog, perché è pieno di canzoni di Beth e di tortini al cioccolato 😀
