Would you drink a shot of carbonara? The crazy mind of ​​chef Valerio Braschi

The taste of authentic carbonara with the same calories as a glass of water. Madness or genius?!

The winner of the sixth edition of Masterchef, Valerio Braschi, invented the carbonara distillate. You don't eat it, but drink it. If the question is "why", I don't have any "because". I'm sorry.

The liquid carbonara is served as a non-alcoholic shot, served in 50ml glasses. To prepare it, the chef said it took about 3 hours for a 300ml portion, distilling everything at a low temperature and vacuum-packed, together with a preparation of zabaglione with pecorino cheese, black pepper broth and roast guanciale cream.

From what I read on the web, Braschi had also transformed a lasagna into a kind of toothpaste tube.

Today is a bad day for Italian grandmothers.

  • While this is probably quite a technical achievement, I'd say, just because you are able do something doesn't necessarily mean that you have to 😊

    • Lasagna in a toothpaste tube does sound a bit stomach churning (though I guess it might be good astronaut food).

    • That's probably one of the reasons why I never wanted to become an astronaut 😊

  • Sounds a bit off. Flavour is not everything there is to a nice Meal, like a Carbonara, after all.

  • I don't know why but I think I would not like it, I will try it though. The image of distilled pecorino, guanciale and eggs looks bad on my head 🤢.

  • Today is a bad day for everyone! I couldn't imagine liking it - without the texture to go with it, I would think that the disembodied taste would be a bit disconcerting.
