Carbonara | Basics with Babish

Chia sẻ
  • Xuất bản 15 Th08, 2019
  • Carbonara has been the subject of some severe bastardization here in the states, where we regularly eschew Italian tradition in favor of garlic, bacon, and green peas for some reason. Today we're doing both the old-school and illegitimate versions of the hotly-contested dish, both of which deserve their place in your grandmother's handwritten recipe cards.
    See those chefs tear me apart here:

    + Traditional Carbonara shopping list:
    1/2 pound guanciale (can substitute with pancetta)
    3 large eggs
    1 egg yolk
    4 ounces of cheese (Pecorino Romano or Parmigiano-Reggiano)
    Ground black pepper
    Spaghetti noodles
    + Modern Carbonara shopping list:
    1/2 pound thick cut bacon
    Parmesan or Romano cheese
    3 large eggs

    I made the “carbonara” tonight, as opposed to the carbonara I usually make. Gotta say - wasn’t my favorite. Maybe I sourced some inferior guanciale, but it just didn’t sing like usual. Back to bacon for me, Babish baby, Babish buby.

    I’m italian and the second carbonara almost gave me an heart attack. The first one was ok, just don’t put salt on top of pasta please (and it’s 3 yolks and one full, not the opposite) 😅

    Actually a part from the bacon the second version was more Italian , the sauce should be creamy but lose and not congealed like you made it . Italians always add pasta water that’s how you get that creamy consistency.

    I like how you put "1/3 cup starchy pasta water" on the shopping list."
    S'cuse me, grocery store employee? Which isle can I find starchy pasta water in?

    i alwyas thought the most important thing in carbonara was the rendered fat. If you use different type of meat you will get a different taste. Taking the fat out is just taking out the taste. You will end up with egged pasta.

    same goes for alioli (alioli is from Spain,im spanish so i KNOW alioli)no cilantro,no curry no NOTHING!! there is no 2 or 15 recipers for alioli just the ONE!! Anything else is a travesty,just a fancy mayonaise you dumb fucks in the USA came up with.

    The subtitles to that video were poorly made, those chefs really weren't that cruel! Plus, they were from Rome... Roman people have no manners, they are used to saying rude stuff without realizing (to the point where Italian tourists often get offended/irritated just as much as foreigners!)

    What's crazy to me is that I have never, in my life, heard 2 Italians agree on the best way to make ANYTHING. Pretending there is a single right way to do something is so egotistical you may as well claim to have invented the recipe.

    Every time I cook Italian food my paranoid imagination tells me that the ghost of my nonna is watching over my shoulder to make sure I keep it authentic, like how she liked things, yes it's the old Italians making us younger Italians carry on with the pedantic cooking behaviour, but every time I make Carbonara I prefer it with garlic. I love garlic in everything! So even Italians don't always stick with the traditional recipes as much as we feel pressured too. It's about individual taste, until your cooking it for the whole famiglia that is and then it's just feast of criticism or love depending how it's cooked, I once witnessed my grandfather throw a plate of pasta in the sink because mum used butter instead of olive oil! No shit lol most often I use both!

    This is probably the worst thing, but I love adding peas to my carbonara. I just like the taste and texture of the peas with the bacon and egg sauce and noodles. I know, i'm the worst.

    If you haven’t tried it with thinly sliced leeks and bacon, you should. It give a slight onionyness to the dish and pop of color.

    Yo got no idea on how to throw pasta into a pot. You should twist so it delicately and perfectly falls all around.

    I don't think you have to continue moving the pasta it if you already salted the water.

    So because of this video I tried making carbonara for the very first time! I've never even had carbonara before, but this looked delicious. I'm happy to report that production of carbonara was a success, I'm sorry to say that it was not my cup of tea. At least the family enjoyed it though. Keeping binging!
