- I’ve never been a chef, but the last few months I’ve been trying to use this for comfort in the kitchen.
- So when Michelin-starred chef Josh Emmett told me about Giorgio Locatelli’s recipe for spaghetti alla carbonara, I knew I had to try it.
- Emmett told me that cooking a simple meal takes only 10 minutes, and it is “a must in the repertoire of any chef.”
- Even with a few strokes along the way, I found that this dish is both impeccable and delicious.

Cooking has never really been my strong suit.
For most of my early 20̵7;s, “cooking dinner” actually meant pouring a little cheese into a tortilla and putting it in the microwave. I burned the instant chow-maine to a crispy state. And the pastries? Forget about it!
But I’ve been trying to use these last few months to make the kitchen more comfortable. So when Michelin chef Josh Emett told me about Giorgio Locatelli’s recipe for spaghetti alla carbonara – which he called “a must in any chef’s repertoire” – I decided to do it with my next personal test.
Even with a few strokes along the way, I finished making one very tasty plate of pasta – proved that this recipe is perfect, and Michelin-approved chef.
