NARCISO RODRIGUEZ FW 2013-14 Rice with shrimps and pumpkin flesh


Life messes up your hair!

“The world is crazy. Definitely crazy! Good things make you fat. Nice things are expensive. The sun on your face makes you get wrinkles. And all the best things in life, mess up your hair…

  • Making love, messes up your hair.
  • Laughing out loud, messes up your hair.
  • Traveling, flying, running, jumping into the sea, mess up your hair.
  • Taking off your clothes, messes up your hair.
  • Kissing the person you love, messes up your hair.
  • Playing, messes up your hair.
  • Singing out loud, messes up your hair.
  • Dancing till you come to doubt whether it was a good idea to wear high heels tonight, lets you hair unrecognizable.

The only thing that really matters is that when you look into the mirror, you see the woman you want to be. So, here is my recommendation to every woman: let yourself go, eat more good things (“for example, this dish”-I would add!) , kiss, hug, dance, fall in love, relax, travel, jump, go to bed late, get up early, run, fly, sing, make yourself beautiful ( “perhaps with this outfit by Narciso Rodriguez” -I would add), make yourself comfortable, admire the landscape, enjoy your life and especially: let your life mess up your hair! The worst that can happen to you is that, when smiling in front of the mirror, you will have to comb your hair again.”

Recipe. FOR 4 PEOPLE

200g (7 oz) black rice + 16 shrimps + 500g (17.6 oz) pumpkin flesh + Worcestershire sauce + extra-virgin olive oil + salt + pepper.

Preheat the oven to 200° C (392° F). Peel the pumpkin, cut into 4 pieces and place on a baking sheet covered with a special paper. Put in the oven and bake at 200° C (392° F) for about 20 minutes (or until it is soft). When cooked, remove it from the oven, peel it, cut into small pieces and blend in the mixer (or sieve). If you do not have any tool, you can mash it well with a fork. Add a tablespoon of olive oil, salt, pepper and half a glass of water to the puree obtained. Stir well and set aside. Clean the shrimps and brown them in a pan with 2 tablespoons of olive oil for a minute. Halfway through cooking, add a teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper and cook for another minute. In the meantime, cook the rice in salted water, drain when ready, and sauté into the pan with the shrimps. Serve the rice with a thin layer of cream of pumpkin lying on the bottom of each plate and enjoy!
