.: 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 🙂

.: The Search

Ads can be different worldwide. So I didn’t know this one and nothing called “Moccona” is on sell here in Italy. As a matter of fact Wikipedia says it is available in Australia, Finland, New Zealand, Russia, and Thailand. I was looking for nice melodies on youtube and I first met a cover of the original music

and my search brought me to the original one by  Elliott Wheeler

you decide which one is better. I think it’s perfect as a lullaby… like my chamomile tea. * Questa musica mi sembra perfetta come ninnananna… insieme a una bella tisana di camomilla e tiglio…

Goodnight

.: Goodnight Zoe

I should have posted this next May, because it was during that month, last year, that I met Zoe. But this song came to me today, and I noticed that it is linked to various nice moments of my life. L’anno scorso a maggio ho conosciuto Zoe. Nonostante siamo parenti, non ci eravamo mai incontrate, perchè viviamo molto lontane, ma sono molto felice di averla “ritrovata”. Zoe is a real nice person, so I want to dedicate my goodnight ritual to her: you are sweet like a warm chamomile cuddle with fragrant honey and drops of lemon.

I wish all your dreams can come true and that you always find love around you, like honey around that bit of zesty lemon that life menace everyone with.

Ti auguro tutto il meglio e una buona notte con queste note.
