Carbonara Day 2024: Interpretazioni Creative di Chef Talentuosi

Carbonara Day 2024: Creative Interpretations by Talented Chefs

Like every April 6th, we celebrate Carbonara, the most loved and cooked pasta recipe in the world. However, we do it in our own way. After tradition and some gourmet variations in past editions, the journey continues with the interpretations of the chefs hosted in the kitchens of the Congusto Institute.

We asked three young professionals to interpret this dish. Three different recipes with a very personal vision which highlights the desire to leave your own signature.

For Carbonara Day 2024 we invited Angelo Bonfitto, Francesco Vitale and Giorgio Monzani. Togheter we take an ideal journey exploring completely unexpected but very contemporary  taste.

Angelo Bonfitto: Spaghettino Garofalo with Notes of Tradition and Innovation

Chef Angelo Bonfitto takes us to his restaurant in Riva di Solto (BG) to savor a revisited Spaghettino Garofalo. His dish, inspired by the colors and flavors of carbonara, combines traditional ingredients such as egg and pecorino with a smoky note coming from catfish lard.

The Italian-Greek Giorgio Monzani surprises us with a carbonara defined as Ιταλοgreco. Trahana, a fermented Greek pasta, combines with Amfilochia pecorino and toasted bacon, creating a dish that celebrates its cultural roots.
