Description

This presentation will explore the history and culture of Spaghetti alla Carbonara, a dish that was made in the IT397 Italian Food in Practice course. It will incorporate important historical points and theories that comprehensively explain how this dish may have come to be. With that, it will explore how our studies in the classroom and in the kitchen compared to the historic or traditional process of making the dish. It will outline the differences and similarities between the American and the Italian way of cooking the dish. It will also play off of the other inter-course presentations put together by the other students that are presenting for IT397. All-in-all it will be a short summary of this dish, its history, and how we made it our own when we brought the recipe to the kitchen.
