Now very much a favourite amongst the Pasta Evangelists community – and somewhat of a signature dish – this hedonistic Roman classic is thought to have its name derived from when charcoal burners were used to cook the dish over campfires. In true Pasta Evangelists style, we’ve added our own twist to this classic, comforting dish, presenting a gloriously creamy carbonara with tangles of fresh bucatini – in our opinion bigger and better than spaghetti – which sop up this luxuriant sauce. Bucatini are widely enjoyed throughout Lazio, the region that is home to Rome, but particularly in the capital.
Although not entirely traditional, we use pancetta in our carbonara sauce because it imparts a deep, salty intensity that pairs with the richness of the egg yolk and cream. We finish our carbonara with freshly ground black pepper and generous shavings of Italian cheese. The wonderfully golden hue of our sauce is the product of the quality egg yolks we source for our Carbonara. Be transported to the ‘Eternal City’ by this classic dish with a distinctively premium twist.
