Carbonara with Harrington’s Streaky Bacon, mushroom, capsicum and chilli

One theory is that this classic dish was invented after the liberation of Rome in 1944. Allied troops distributed military rations consisting of powdered egg and bacon, which locals used to season their pasta. Another possible clue is in the name ‘Alla carbonara’ meaning ‘coal-worker’s style’. It was cooked and enjoyed by coal workers, or the abundant ground black pepper resembles coal. Ideal as a simple Sunday night dinner on the couch or a delightful dish to impress someone special. Harrington’s Streaky Bacon has just the right taste and texture for a true carbonara.

It ‘carries’ the other flavours, and is the hero of the sandwich. So always use top quality Harrington’s Loin Bacon, it’s hand-crafted and 100% New Zealand.

Harrington’s Ham glazed with whisky, marmalade, and mustard

Season’s Eatings. Ham is one of those traditional dishes that everyone looks forward to. It seems that the Germans kicked off the great tradition of the festive ham, back in the dim and distant past, when they would serve it as a tribute to Freyr who, as we’re sure everyone knows, was a pagan god connected with boars, harvest and fertility. These days ham is more connected with family, friends and a Kiwi Christmas, especially with this recipe that puts a delicious twist on the festive family favourite.

Paella with Harrington’s Chorizo and Harrington’s Streaky bacon

It’s a little confusing but ’paella’ or to be more exact ‘la paella’ is an old Valencian name for the cooking pan itself and not the dish. There are other theories, the most romantic of them is that the dish was first prepared by a lover for his fiancée and that the word is a corruption of ‘para ella’ meaning ‘for her’ in Spanish. It takes an authentic recipe to make a truly great paella. And top quality ingredients, like Harrington’s fresh chorizo made to a traditional recipe, with its spicy tang of fresh chili and smoked paprika blended with the finest 100% New Zealand pork and beef. Now we’re talking Spanish.
