Carbonara was introduced to me as a cream-based with lots of butter, cream and mushroom. I watched Jamie Oliver’s Food Tube to check out new post and there I saw an interesting link — The Real Spaghetti Carbonara.
It’s interesting to learn that the real authentic Italian spaghetti carbonara doesn’t call for CREAM. Yes! No cream. Basically, eggs and bacon. Some of Jamie Oliver’s followers commented that a cream-based carbonara that we know can be confused with creamy fettucini.
