I came across this short film a day or two ago and fell in love. I’ve tried a few of these techniques over the years but once the bottleneck breaks in your hand you really have to decide if the risk of drinking shattered glass is worth it. All the same, It’s a wonderful and fun film!
Once again I found myself at Tacos El Gordo for lunch. It’s been roughly a twice weekly ritual for me since two close friends swore It was the best adobada they’ve had in town. As usual I ordered a few al pastor tacos, finished them and came to a hard conclusion. They were absolutely right. Of all the named and nameless taco shacks I’ve been to, Tacos El Gordo just nails the tiny pastor experience so perfectly.
Pork cut right off the spit onto corn tortillas with cilantro, onion and a guacamole sauce. Finally, a slice of pineapple, nicked from the tippy top of the rotisserie, crowns the whole wonderful canoe of joy. At $2 a pop you can get three tacos and a coke for under $8. Value you can taste is the only value that matters.
This looks intense. Master Sommeliers go through hell to get their pins. This gives us a peek into their world as they study throughout the year or so leading up to their testing. The film will have a limited release in April. Hopefully it will be in theaters soon. Or at least Netflix!
Here is the films official synopsis:
Somm is the story of four sommeliers attempting to pass the prestigious Master Sommelier exam, a test with one of the lowest pass rates in the world. The exam covers literally anything having to do with the entire world of wine and that is just the beginning. Access to the Court Of Master Sommeliers has always been strictly regulated and cameras have never been allowed anywhere near the exam…. Until now. How much do you know about wine?
