Les Petits Chefs make Jamie Oliver’s Skinny Carbonara from Everyday Super Food

This term with the Petits Chefs, as well as working with guest chefs, the boys get to work… with me! I love these weeks because it gives me a chance to really work with the boys closely and teach them some of my favourite recipes. This week I decided to show them one of my favourite recent Jamie Oliver recipes – a twist on carbonara pasta with a different way to make pesto – both very useful techniques!

As the boys will tell you, any good dish starts with bacon…

    This is another one of those dishes where the photographs enable you to imagine the cooking smells. Loved it.

      Glad you enjoyed the pics – it’s hard to take photos when everyone’s so busy!
