Italian cuisine in your home
Vicolo della Scrofa, for those who know Rome, is one of the most characteristic and symbolic streets. Only in the trattoria of this street was the first time Carbonara was created in 1944. The most credible story is about the meeting of ingredients available to American soldiers and the imagination of a Roman chef. The result was a spaghetti carbonara prototype: eggs, bacon (then guanciale) and cheese.
Man gradually modified the recipe to what we all know. In trattorias, as in the star-studded restaurants of the capital, in Italy and abroad, in countless versions: with or without pepper, with one egg yolk per person or with the addition of at least one full egg.
