ファッロのパスティエーラ

今日のお題はファッロ。

「総合解説」用に“ファッロのパスティエーラ”のリチェッタを訳しながら、これ考えた人エライ!と思ってました。
ご存知の通り、ファッロはイタリアではその価値が再評価されている話題の古代小麦です。
パスティエーラに入れる牛乳で煮た小麦の粒の代用品にしても、何の問題もないですねー。
多分、ナポリ料理専門の人は、こんなこととっくの昔に知っていたのでしょうが、見事に秘密は守られてきたようです。

ファッロの利用価値は、無限に広がりますねー。

ナポリの復活祭のドルチェ、パスティエーラと言えば、リコッタクリームの中の小麦の粒のプチプチの食感が、激しく病みつきになるドルチェです。
実は、3年前にブログでパスティエーラの話題を取り上げた時、もうすでに、「ファッロで代用する」、という話もしていたのですが、実際に代用したリチェッタは初めて訳しました。今月の「総合解説」に載せましたので、ぜひどなたか作ってみて下され。
昔のナポリでは復活祭の時期になるとパスティエーラ用小麦の行商人が登場したそうですが、さすがに現代では、スーパーで瓶詰めの水煮小麦を買います。

プーリアにも小麦の粒を使ったドルチェがあります。

ザクロの粒も加わって、プチプチ感マシマシですね。

そういえば、今年の復活祭は4月1日だそうですよ。
春が近づいていますねー。

An Experimental Short Film Captures the Dramatic Dance of the Seasons

French film director Thomas Blanchard (previously) is known for his video work with oils and inks. In his most recent video, DANCE DANCE, Blanchard uses flowers as the contextual framework for his signature coils and swirls of color. Flowers have long been used as symbols of vitality and mortality, and the fire and ice these blooms are subjected to suggests a literal interpretation of those concepts. In the dramatically scored video, flowers and foliage light on fire, freeze and melt in icy pools, and are consumed by billowing clouds of colorful smoke. You can see more of Blanchard’s work on Vimeo, Behance, and Facebook. (via We and the Color)

Complex Moiré Patterns Created by Mechanical Drawings Machines by James Nolan Gandy

Artist and metalworker James Nolan Gandy creates elaborate drawing machines that easily put your childhood spirograph to shame. The machines are engineered from relatively simple mechanisms that when combined, produce mind-boggling shapes and interconnected moiré patterns.

Although the gears and pulleys are crafted in a way to make some of the work on their own, Gandy has not yet manufactured a system to lift the pen at specific intervals. Therefore many of his works are collaborative studies, equally created from the talents of man and machine. Some of my favorites are those created with a high contrast between paper and ink, such as the brilliant blue form seen in his drawing below.

You can view more of Gandy’s drawing machines in action on his Instagram. (via The Awesomer)

US teens explain why they’re walking out of school to protest gun violence

Protest

There’s a really annoying saying that some parents say to their children once they become teenagers who have grown weary of living under their house rules: “vote with your feet.” If you’re fed up with something, then leave.

Fittingly, at 12pm yesterday, thousands of teens walked out of America’s high schools. Their aim was to show solidarity with the victims and survivors of the Parkland, Florida massacre, but it was also to prove that they won’t stop protesting until the government…
