17th January Carbonara Day


Please join this celebration, cooking Pasta alla Carbonara at home with my recipe : http://cookinginrome.blogspot.com/2008/01/pasta-alla-carbonara.html, or asking for it in an Italian restaurant where you live.


THE COUNTDOWN has started: this Thursday, January 17th, 2008, is the International Day of Italian Cuisines. For one day, everyone who makes, promotes or simply loves Italian food outside of Italy is invited to carry out a small activity to celebrate authenticity and quality in Italian cuisine. This unprecedented celebration is led by over 130 Italian chefs and restaurateurs in 35 countries. They belong to itchefs-gvci, (Virtual Group of Italian Chefs) and will cook Pasta alla Carbonara according to the original, authentic recipe. This simple dish, a pillar of Italian gastronomy, is in fact the symbol of counterfeit Italian cuisine in the world at large. The International Day of Italian Cuisines, under the aegis of itchefs-gvci, is born of a desire to redress this imbalance.
