Notes from the Curator
Enjoy this simple set that includes the essential items you need for your Carbonara dish — guanciale or cured italian pork cheeks, pecorino romano and good pasta from Gragnano, the pasta capital of Italy. To start your carbonara dish:
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; add diced guanciale. Cook, turning occasionally, until evenly browned and crispy, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and drain on paper towels.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until tender yet firm to the bite.
Whisk eggs, half of the Pecorino Romano cheese, and some black pepper in a bowl until smooth and creamy. Pour egg mixture over cooked pasta, stirring quickly, until creamy and slightly cooled. Stir in guanciale. Top with remaining Pecorino Romano cheese and more black pepper.
Enjoy with an Italian red, Valpolicella. Finish off with a cup of tea with our best honey and some slices of Christmas Panettone.
Shall you opt to use our alternative Basket packaging, this gift set is ideal for a Large Basket.
