Neil joins long time friend and fellow chef Steve Manfredi to learn the secret of a perfect Carbonara the italian way!
This is essentially a Roman dish and, like many well-loved dishes, has been tampered with by chefs and home cooks to the point where the original, elegantly simple preparation has been lost.
The Italian original uses air-dried pork cheek- guanciale- not bacon, which in any case is smoked.
While it is difficult or near impossible to get here in Australia, air-dried pork belly- pancetta- is acceptable.
It contains no cream- an infuriatingly silly addition that seems to have gained in popularity.
Put a large pot of water on for the pasta.
While it is coming to the boil, place the olive oil and pancetta in a saucepan on a very low heat for 5 minutes, then add the garlic.
The pancetta should brown very slowly for another 5 minutes.
Stir it occasionally until the pancetta is crisp.
Meanwhile, beat the eggs together with the parsley and a little salt. When the water comes to the boil, add a good pinch of salt and cook the spaghetti until it is al dente.
Drain it well, and then place it in a serving bowl.
Add the pancetta, garlic and cooking juices to the pasta and toss.
Now add the egg mixture, cheese and some freshly grated pepper and toss quickly.
Serve it hot, straight away.
