Did you know?

Carbonara, much-loved pasta with bacon, eggs and cream, derives its name from carbone, or coal.

The miners of Rome used to take pan-fried pancetta (bacon) and egg with them when they went underground; at Da Angelo the original rough-and-ready dish is smoothed and silkened with a goodly dash of cream.

Tiramisu, that most wickedly rich, utterly delicious concoction of Tia Maria, sponge fingers, marscarpone and cream, translates as “pick me up”. Some people say it should be “lift me up”, something that would be hard to do if you have too much!
