3 Chefs Cook Pasta Carbonara 3 Ways: Traditional, Modern, Experimental | Bon Appétit

Year ago

We challenged three of our esteemed chefs - Carla Lalli Music, Chris Morocco and Sohla El-Waylly -- to each make different versions of the same dish: pasta carbonara. While each variant has to be similar in some ways (porky, cheesy, salty, etc.), each chef was assigned a different interpretation to cook up: traditional, modern and experimental. Which one would you want to try? FYI you're allowed to say all three.
Check out the traditional recipe here: bonappetit.com/recipe/traditional-carbonara
We took a deep dive into traditional carbonara, tracing it back to its roots as a peasant dish made with pantry ingredients, and re-considered every factor. The result? Less pasta, more crispy-chewy strips of guanciale, and more silky creamy egg to hold it all together.
Filmed on 1/17/20.

don't feel bad Chris, you're definitely not alone in the not liking peanut butter. to be honest I only know a small handful of people that DO like peanut butter, many Danes do NOT understand the fascination so many Americans seem to have with it xD

I'm a little late to the party but Sohla is extremely talented. I'm disgusted that she has not been paid. Like, did you see her level of genius? She had THE most challenging aspect of this project and nailed it. It makes me so sad to see in 2021 people of colour are still being mistreated. Shame on you BA :(

Such a shame that the traditional, modern and personal twist series did not take off. I think It needed more time for BA fans to appreciate it.

Honestly, having just got hip to whole kerfuffle (Bon Appetit flameout, Sohla's genius, Conde Nasty's BIPOC nastiness) and going back to spot Sohla in older bits, this whole video looks like an SNL spoof, where the other two are self-important, idiotic parodies of themselves. The are so vapid next to Sohla.

Flash back 200 years ago Poor Italian Farmers wife with 12 kids: Let’s see... I got eggs, parmigiana , left over bacon and pasta and some black pepper.. meh.. not bad.. Here kids eat this. Fast forward to now, ok so the reason you need the pepper is to cut the richness...

Sohla has blossomed post-BA. She was always damned good at her job, but she EXUDES competence and expertise now. I had heard she was underpaid, but now hearing how blatant the pay discrimination was, I just... Wow. BA had a treasure and they didn't care. She's well shot of it.

Idk what is up with her pancetta but it looks like regular streaky bacon. You can get better pancetta than that at your local grocery store. Plus, it does have the same seasoning as guanciale usually

I’ve never liked Chris and starting at 11:07 is a perfect example of why. He comes over to tell her how she’s wrong, offers to help (w/ an attitude), and messes up (obv on purpose, in a classic pass-agg way). I can’t understand why people like him. Cannot stand to watch him with his children. He probably pays someone to scan the comments, so he can critique the grammar of those who post anything slightly negative about him.
