Carbonara comes from the Italian word “carbonaro” which means charcoal burner. Carbonara was the dish that most of the coal miners use to eat because it was made up of most of the food groups and was a hearty meal that sustain them for a large portion of the day while they were at work in the mines.
There a few different variations of how it’s made but Chef Andrea likes making it with pancetta, local egg yokes, grated pecorino Romano cheese, cracked black pepper and plenty of chopped Italian parsley tossed with al dente dececco spaghetti. It’s a rich dish with plenty of flavor and pairs nicely with a sangria or your favorites Italian wine.
