A Glass of Sicily

A Glass of Sicily” is a beautiful tour of Sicily told through a glass of Tasca d’Almerita. Sure, it’s essentially an ad for the winery and Sicily, but try to tell me you aren’t on the first plane to Italy after watching this video.

Related: Pasta alla carbonara (usually spaghetti, but also fettuccine, rigatoni or bucatini) is a classic Italian pasta dish based on eggs, cheese (pecorino or parmesan), bacon (guanciale or pancetta), and black pepper.

It’s so simple, but so freakin’ delicious. Seriously. When made proper, it might be the singularly greatest contribution to the culinary arts from Italy. And it’s fairly easy to make for a home chef.

A few recipes by Marcella Hazan, Mario Batali, Giada de Laurentiis, Nigella Lawson, Gordon Ramsay, Martha Stewart, Rachael Ray, Ruth Reichl, and Calvin Trillin, who has campaigned to have it replace turkey as the Thanksgiving national dish.
