Carbonara is the most famous pasta recipe in the world. But how did it all start?
Rome, 1944. An Italian cook meets a young American soldier with a mission: to set up a special meal for the Allied forces stationed in the city. Discover the legend behind the origins of carbonara, a dish prepared for the first time to take care of someone that’s still continuing today to bring everyone together. On April 6th for #CarbonaraDay prepare a carbonara for whoever you care.
Inspired by this story of caring, Barilla, who has always believed in the power of pasta to unite everyone, turned #Carbonara into #CareBonara, the ideal recipe to take care of people.
And to make a real gesture of care, Barilla will be next to Food For Soul - the nonprofit founded by chef Massimo Bottura and Lara Gilmore - supporting their mission and sustainability initiatives around the world, with a donation of 1 million pasta dishes throughout 2021, nourishing socially vulnerable individuals through the organization’s operational partners in Refettorio projects in Europe, the Americas and Asia.
