Thursday 6th April 2017, 12 noon - 2 pm CEST & 1pm - 2pm EDT

On the 6th April 2016 – exactly one year ago – a controversy erupted after a video recipe was posted online that shook up one of the most well-known Italian pasta dishes: carbonara. This debate spread far and wide on the internet and in the Italian and international media, which dubbed it “carbonara-gate”.

For Italian purists, carbonara requires 5 ingredients and can only be made following one method. However, more innovative cooks believe that since pasta is a versatile dish, it would be wrong to impose limits on its culinary interpretation. The debate is alive and kicking and we want your opinion!

What can you do?
