Our friend in Glasgow is at it again.... Watch Domenico Crolla on an episode of The Hour Show.
Chef Domenico Crolla shows a step by step method for creating his incredible tasting Spaghetti Alla Carbonara.
What I found most interesting in this video is the simple step by step instructions he provides. He takes you by the hand so that you will be able to re-create this amazing dish in your own kitchen.
I think the important point he makes is worth repeating. For quality, elegent dishes, you must use quality ingredients. For example note that Chef Dominico only uses Extra Virgin olive oil.
Also, instead of bacon he uses Italian pancetta. pancetta is "a type of dry cured meat, similar to bacon. It is pork belly that has been salt cured and spiced."
He does explain though,you can also use other meats if you wish, as well as using no meat at all.
He insists that you should not use bacon due to all of the additives.
I love this recipe and I look forward to sharing more of Chef Dominico's recipes.
