I tried almost every recipe of hers. And of course this one also.”It is dee-licious, really. Heavy but heavenly tasting. But it is not Carbonara. Using a name of a well known recipe, adjusting the original ingredients to one’s own taste and even adding others just creates confusion and wrong taste expectations. Yes, we take food very seriously.”Another Italian fumed: “This is a recipe of yours, it’s not Carbonara. No wine, no cream and egg yolks only in Italian real Carbonara”.
