How to eat: Carbonara

This month, How to Eat is tucking into the ever controversial carbonara. But do you need to use spaghetti? And does it really have a role at breakfast?

“Lads, it’s just bacon and eggs,” no one was heard to say as this hot mess morphed into “Carbonaragate”, with some calling tongue in cheek for the Italian PM to intervene. How to Eat (HTE) is, therefore, courting a full-blown diplomatic incident with this entry. But [weary, stoic sigh] that is the path that HTE has chosen. What is HTE – a series exploring how best to eat Britain’s favourite dishes – if it is not fearlessly shaking shibboleths and speaking truth to power (… about eggy pasta)?
