Recipe: Carbonara

Elizabeth Minchilli’s new book, Eating Rome: Living the Good Life in the Eternal City, offers advice on where to find the city's best eats, from pasta to gelato. If a trip to Italy isn’t in the cards she also shares recipes for her Roman favorites, like this one for carbonara.

Carbonara

KCRW’s Evan Kleiman first went to Rome in the early 1970’s and for decades it seemed like the city was suspended in time. But Elizabeth Minchilli tells us that is changing. Sure you can still find bucatini all’amatriciana and cacio e pepe, but now the old trattorias share the streets with juice bars and vegan chocolate shops.

Elizabeth’s new book, Eating Rome: Living the Good Life in the Eternal City, offers advice on where to find the city’s best eats, from pasta to gelato. If a trip to Italy isn’t in the cards she also shares recipes for her Roman favorites, like this one for carbonara. If you’ve never tried making carbonara at home, the video below shows you just how easy it is. But Elizabeth warns not to skimp on the ingredients. Imported Italian pasta and real guanciale will elevate this dish and transport you right to Rome.
