.: 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 😀
