I once attended a class by a French chef who waxed poetic about the authentic French carbonara, without cream. But I just can’t accept it. My mind is refusing to acknowledge the authentic carbonara as real carbonara. While it’s definitely a tasty dish, my tongue keep expecting the cream.
Habit is really a strange thing.
