WHAT IF THE CARBONARA IS NOT AN ITALIAN ORIGIN DISH?

WHAT IF THE CARBONARA IS NOT AN ITALIAN ORIGIN DISH?

November 28, 2017

It’s the classic for turists: if you say Italy, they think about spaghetti; if you say spaghetti, they think about carbonara. What if we tell you that this tipical roman dish was not created in Rome, or worst than this, it has not italian origins?
Yes. Studies say that. And probably, carbonara has american origin. (US friends, you are going to be very happy hearing this notice!)
Let’s talk about theory. It is common for everyone associates this dish to Rome and to it’s yummy courses. During last decades, many region or cities had claimed the origin of carbonara, starting from Veneto, particularly in Polesine region, where in XIX century the revolutionary assemblies where held by Carbonari in pub where the dish was cooked for the first time.
Then we have Naples, where Ippolito Cavalcanti (a rich man and writer) with his essay “Cucina toerico-pratica” wrote in 1837, talks about the traditional recipes of many Naples’ origin dishes; tipical ingredients of Neapolitan cooking are the same of carbonara, so that means one thing: carbonara comes from Naples!
Also Abruzzo, a region in the center of Italy claimed it, proving that workers of coal factory were the inventors of carbonara; an invenction due to the necessity of this workers to have a nourishing meal with primary ingredients. The name of the dish is taken by the coal (the italian for coal is “carbone” while the factory is “carbonaia”).
Last but not least, we have the american hypothesis (and that’s creepy for italian!): this one supposes that the american soldiers, during the Second World War in Italy, created the carbonara: but how? Italian cookers fed ranks with pasta and nothing else; they were so bored about that, then they tried to mix the pasta with their K-Ration (composed by eggs and bacon) and they find out that was delicious! After that, italian cookers modified the receipt, the one which became famous all over the world, the most faked dish ever, with a million of variant, from the vegetarian receipt to the seaside one. If this hypothesis happened in Rome or Naples, it’s a mistery!
Do you know what we think about this story? Who cares! For those people who love cooking, it doesn’t matter the real origin. For us, carbonara means Rome!
Below some special restaurant where eat a great carbonara if you are going to be in Italy soon:
Trattoria Du' Cesari, in Turin at Corso Regina Margherita 252/b. Reserve a table at least one week before your visit.
Eggs restaurant, in Rome at Vicolo del Cedro 26. It’s a well-known restaurant in Trastevere, where eggs and carbonara are the special guests! Find out information about this place on the major magazines.
Caligola Cucina Romana, for those who love roman dishes in Palermo. It is located in Via Quintino Sella 65.
