In celebration of World Pasta Day this October, we have teamed up with all-day breakfast institution EGGBREAK and TABASCO® Brand Pepper Sauces to create an exclusive menu of new brunch-inspired pasta dishes.
Though this particular dish represents a peculiar culinary crossover, it can be said that a decadent carbonara possesses the same comforting properties as a hearty bowl of porridge on a cold winter’s morning. In homage to this staple breakfast dish - the old reliable of morning sustenance - we pair our signature “carbonara of dreams” with orzo pasta. These small nibs are reminiscent in shape of cooked oats. In Italy, this pasta is often referred to as ‘risoni’, due to its resemblance to a ‘large grain of rice’, though its Anglo-American name (‘orzo’) stems from the Italian word for ‘barley’ for similar reasons.
Aesthetic debate aside, orzo is admittedly a pasta rarely served alla carbonara, but we think this adds a fun twist to this limited-edition dish for World Pasta Day. Infused with signature breakfast flavours like smoky pancetta (which we fry in TABASCO® Sauce) and rich, golden egg yolks, our “porridge” carbonara is an indulgent take on the burgeoning British brunch tradition... by way of Italia.
Note: Please consume or freeze our pasta and sauces within 2 days of delivery.
