“Knock – Knock : Murder or Treat?”

provide yourself with the S’mores Lollipop * and other mouth-watering treats, with a beautiful face mask (one of those that…. if you open the door with that cucumber smeared on your face you are more scarying than if you wore a full Halloween costume), and make sure that there is still a daylight, or someone in your home that can protect you from the psychological anxiety that this show generates.

Halloween has always been one of my favourite celebrations!

I know, I know, is not an Italian custom. giphy8So what? I celebrate it anyway. It will be for my penchant for the theatre but the idea of dressing up and walk around with a different face for a night in which everything-can-happen, it’s something I really like!

I’m glad that in recent years it is also spreading here and that some children come knocking for the traditional “trick or treat?”; It will not be a little make-up and fun to make us lose our cultural identity !!
What I hope is not going to be imported along with the festivities and costumes by creatures of the night, it is the incredible spear in murders that take place on the night of October 31.
I don’t think it’s the party itself to blame, whilst the possibility for murderers to blend…

“Tuna Tartare, White Wine & Revenge”

Thr0ugh The Mirr0r

Thesea sparkling wave crests breaking on the rocks , the breeze that dangles the swings , children chasing each other with bucket and spade , the iodine smell on the warm skin ,
the happy lull of lazy rest of the summer , are the ideal setting for a terrace at sunset , a glass ofGewurztraminer , and a delicious fresh tuna tartare * , to be tasted on a comfortable wicket sofa on a terrace at sunset.
giphy7It would be the perfect scenery for a romantic evening , with a few citronella candles to avoid being eaten by tigers mosquitoes , but if you were to be the single case-hardened ( for yours or others choice) , then I have a fantastic alternative for you !
Perhaps because of the luxurious holiday location in the Hamptons , the TV series “Revenge” has always made me…

“Power, Seduction, Wine… other Wiiiine!!!”


Thr0ugh The Mirr0r

Winter is coming.

Ok , not quite, we’re just in July, but I like to be prepared .
And since , unlike the Summer, Winter is very long , it is better to care for themselves with all 6 ( for now, but is supposed to be 8 ) seasons of Game of Thrones, a nice wool blanket andlovely warm old-fashioned dish* , refill the glass and get ready for a long and exciting battle for power fought with secrets , conspiracies , seduction and wine, a lot, a lot , and a lot more, wine !

mtm5mjkwotmymdk1nzu1nje11The TV series is a result of the transposition of the fantasy saga by George RR Martin , but from the fifth season it is standing apart so much that it can now be regarded as an autonomous work. Both versions are still work in progress , but for the books’…

“Hannibal, Crusted Fillet And Red Wine”

Thr0ugh The Mirr0r

giphy2Winter,strictly . Late afternoon , when the sky is still not entirely cloaked in blacks clouds but still retains some shade of blue, and a few more overbearing stars come out .

In this atmosphere , make sure you locked the door and windows ( or on first draft which makes it slam you will leave your heart on the floor ) , and open a bottle of a good red winegiphy3 not a cardboard swiped at the supermarket , a really good one, not too sweet , I recommend theBarolowine from Piedmont: pronounced garnet colour red, at times ruby and presenting orange hues with the progress of aging ; its aroma is intense , complex and very persistent.

Pour yourself a generous glass ( not plastic ! ) and , after having prepared a delicious beef tenderloin crusted * tumblr_inline_nfxeddi3rd1svk9zc, sit on a soft…

“Caccia alla Spia”

A chi ci si può dare credito, ci si interroga in Homeland. All’eroe di guerra creduto morto in Iraq, rinvenuto e scarcerato dopo anni di prigionia, che forse è diventato, nel frattempo, una spia di Al Qaeda?

“Uno dopo l’Altro…”

C’è stato un periodo in cui lo streaming era ancora una specie di miraggio lontano e al quale sapeva accedere solo l’esperto di computer di turno; un tempo in cui le reti private costavano talmente tanto da essere d’elite, in cui non esisteva Netflix o Nowtv. Un tempo in cui, per farla breve, dovevi accontentarti … Continua a leggere “Uno dopo l’Altro…”
