        What's crazy to me is that I have never, in my life, heard 2 Italians agree on the best way to make ANYTHING. Pretending there is a single right way to do something is so egotistical you may as well claim to have invented the recipe.

            Every time I cook Italian food my paranoid imagination tells me that the ghost of my nonna is watching over my shoulder to make sure I keep it authentic, like how she liked things, yes it's the old Italians making us younger Italians carry on with the pedantic cooking behaviour, but every time I make Carbonara I prefer it with garlic. I love garlic in everything! So even Italians don't always stick with the traditional recipes as much as we feel pressured too. It's about individual taste, until your cooking it for the whole famiglia that is and then it's just feast of criticism or love depending how it's cooked, I once witnessed my grandfather throw a plate of pasta in the sink because mum used butter instead of olive oil! No shit lol most often I use both!

                The video where the same 3 chefs made their version, it looked nothing like it's normally served.

                  This is probably the worst thing, but I love adding peas to my carbonara. I just like the taste and texture of the peas with the bacon and egg sauce and noodles. I know, i'm the worst.

                        Every time you say "Carbonara" my ears get a little wet.

                        So, like, stop.

                            If you haven’t tried it with thinly sliced leeks and bacon, you should. It give a slight onionyness to the dish and pop of color.

                                Yo got no idea on how to throw pasta into a pot. You should twist so it delicately and perfectly falls all around.

                                I don't think you have to continue moving the pasta it if you already salted the water.

                                    So because of this video I tried making carbonara for the very first time! I've never even had carbonara before, but this looked delicious. I'm happy to report that production of carbonara was a success, I'm sorry to say that it was not my cup of tea. At least the family enjoyed it though. Keeping binging!

                                                I add cream to my carbonara like a true savage. It's good tho.

                                                        I've made the original recipe and its meh bland and I know garlic is forbidden but it increases the flavor and it helps a lot.

Alfredo sauce, chicken, bacon, mushrooms, and onions. That will make the Italians cringe like they never have before

Guanciale (at least the Latium version) is already flavored with garlic which is put in before the aging phase. I might have problems with the amount you put in, but I see also from other videos of you that you really love garlic, so totally approved. With caveats, it is possible to do variations.
