The recipe is taken from Jamie with a twist by putting in some Cashew nuts – it taste soooo gooood. I think Portobello mushroom would also be amazing too. Let me know if anyone of you tried this recipe with Mushroom.
I am going to Columbia on the 19th April. Connect with you guys soon!

Everyone should learn Italian cooking, it is about cooking with simple ingredients while paying respect to it. I stole this recipe from Jamie Oliver but I personally like my tomatoes gilled, it is softer and the flavor is more complex.
A little update of my life in Antigua. I finally went to spanish class with a private teacher and ask about my level of spanish. I got a 4.5 out of 10. Boy, I was happy to know that my days starring in front of the computer to save money, does help me out quite a bit. My Salsa is getting better as we speak, I will probably do another 3 lessons before I invite a girl at the bar. Sketching is a little mainly because I am very lazy in Antigua. I will be going to do another indie guide for Antigua so watch out for that!
Here comes the recipe!
Everyone should definitely have this recipe down in their arsenal. Its creamy, Chessy and it’s Carbonara. I am happy to say that after the second, I can make a pretty good damn Carbonara. Here the recipes after some trail and error!
Here the recipe!
4 strips of bacon
1 Handful of grated Parmesan cheese
150g of double cream
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Cook the pasta in salted boiling water as per the packet instructions
Sliced the bacon and fry it in a pan till golden brown
Whisk the egg in a bowl with the cheese, cream, salt and pepper (good hit of pepper)
When the pasta is cooked, stir into the bacon
Add the sauce into the pasta and let the heat from the pasta cooked the raw egg
Add the pasta water to thin the sauce
Garnish with thyme and pepper
What’s important is that you add the cream while the pasta is still hot. This way, the residual heat of the pasta will cook the eggs, but not so that they resemble scrambled eggs.
Make sure to give it a good hit of pepper (Must)
I add a little of thyme as I find it a little too heavy.
Jamie Oliver add mint leaves and peas to his version.
