Alessandro, our new chef from Roma, will be cooking spaghettini alla carbonara for us every Wednesday. Carbonara originates from Rome and the rich sauce is made with eggs and cheese. Carbonara means coal in English, and there are plenty of theories as to where the name comes from, but one thing everyone in Italy agrees on, is that it should not contain any cream! Our version is made with spaghettini in a deliciously creamy sauce with black pepper and guanciale, or pig’s cheeks.
