Molly Makes Mushroom Carbonara | From the Test Kitchen | Bon Appétit

  • Join Molly Baz in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she makes mushroom carbonara. Mushrooms aren't exactly a substitute for the guanciale or pancetta that you would normally have in carbonara, but they bring their own deep flavor to the dish.

    Why have I been wasting time cutting mushrooms with a knife all these years?!?! Can't believe it never occurred to me to just tear them with my fingers.

        I get confused with chefs on yt. Some always say to not use evoo with high heat. If it smokes it has went bad and has free radicals. Others say get the pot ripping hot and use evoo and its ready when it smokes.. what gives? I mean, can i use it with high heat or not?? Honest question here

          Molly calling Andy out, classic! I have recently found a BA video with Andy wearing a full on buttoned shirt and that is more precious than any shirtless moment could ever be. <3

                              Everyone worried about 1 pasta. They waste a lot more than that im sure, it's a test kitchen. Sometimes things don't turn out right and they are thrown away. They compost so that's what happens to a bad test recipe. Chill on a single pasta.

                                  I made this and I think you can really brighten this dish up by adding in fresh thyme leaves towards the end of frying the mushrooms and stirring in a generous amount of finely chopped fresh parsley at the end of cooking.

                                    I tried this recipe and thank you! It was wonderful. I appreciate the realistic technique and experience with explanation for it too.
                                    Thanks to Molly and the whole BA folks👍

                                      I just made a cheaper version of this (without the mushrooms) earlier for my breakfast and it was still good! Thanks for the recipe! 😘

                                          Why do all these chefs sound depressed? I get this is meant to be more chilled out but c’mon at least pretend to be enjoying ur self

                                                carbonara without bacon? Heresy.
                                                Can't say this is vegetarian cause parmegiano reggiano uses calf rennet.

                                                      Throw away the white of the eggs and add water afterwards seems strange to me. Keep the white and everything is just fine for me. Doing Carbonara since a long time without feeling bad about egg white.

                                                          Did she just use the wooden spoon to taste and then put that spoon back into the pot... disgusting!!!!
