"Midnight Diner" on Netflix

I'm delighted to have found this series on Netflix. I had read about it previously, but didn't want to add more to my long list of movies-to-watch, so when it popped up in my suggestions, I decided to watch an episode (they're less than 30 minutes-long) and I'm now hooked!

Surprisingly, I don't feel the need to binge watch it... just like the simple dishes highlighted in every episode, each one has to be savored and processed slowly to enjoy the the complexity of the human stories that at first glance might look mundane, but when delved deeper into their characters' lives, they are masterfully elevated to intricate and delightful stories... just like the food.

What I like is that each episode has an independent story - or at least from what I've watched so far (I'm still on the first season - of five!)

Here's the link to the trailer on YouTube, if you want to have an early taste:

Recomendaciones: Qué escuchar: Podcast en español: LUXUS MENSAE

LUXUS MENSAE es un podcast dedicada a la historia de la alimentación y la gastronomía contadas por la escritora e historiadora Almudena Villegas, quien también tiene una columna de gastronomía en El Debate.

Me lo recomendó Rosa Llopis, que fue mi profesora en el Diplomado en Traducción Gastronómica y desde entonces no he parado de escucharlo y aprender sobre la historia del fascinante mundo de la gastronomía. Rosa Llopis también escribe sobre gastronomía y lengua en Hule y Mantel.
