The idea comes from Monica Olivieri, food marketing expert and food event organizer, from her profound love for pasta and the recipe. Carbonara is one of the most popular Italian/Roman dishes in London.
British people also grew up with this specialty, along with other Italian recipes (see the baby meal pot of Bolognese, Lasagna, Amatriciana), but overlooking its origin and the original formula. It seems that Carbonara is part of the English menu, too, but with a new interpretation (cream and mushroom).
The event is focused on the iconic Carbonara dish and to its traditional recipe.
It is an educational food event, a cultural event about Italian food and Italian culture, and it is a charity event in support of homeless people.
6 International chefs will prepare Carbonara, but just the Italian chefs will be entitled to cook it with a special twist.
Cooking shows and private dining experiences.
Live music and excellent bar.
