Here's a recipe for Carbonara from Chef Erind Halilaj of Il Brutto & La Matta that can be made with a Made In Saute Pan & Stock Pot!
Born in Albania and raised in Italy, Erind Halilaj learned the meaning of quality service at a young age. Through his mother’s role as director of operations for luxury hotels, Erind was introduced to a world of fine dining and 5-star service. This led to a deep passion for not only fantastic food, but all aspects of the dining experience.
Halilaj worked at several 5-star hotels and highly praised restaurants in Italy, Florida, and New York City before joining Austin's New Waterloo team as Executive Chef of Il Brutto and La Matta. Il Brutto is a neighborhood Italian restaurant and La Matta is a sandwich shop, both in East Austin. Il Brutto was honored as one of 2019's Top 10 Restaurants in Austin by the Austin Chronicle’s food editor and La Matta was voted Austin Monthly’s best new restaurant in 2018.
