Most of us have a love-hate relationship with dinner. We want to eat well, cook from scratch and know what’s in the food we’re feeding our family, but really, who has the time? Mystique and Phil from Chef Sous Chef would argue, we all do. Not only do the pair put us to shame by running a successful food blog in addition to their full-time jobs, but they spend their free time testing new recipes and finding the best versions of their favourite ingredients to make sure every forkful is an experience.
We were lucky enough to get their advice on how to create a beautiful and simple hummus for our next dinner party in the first event in our Adulting Series for Empire Phoenix and also caught up with them last week where they created this mouthwatering Carbonara right before our eyes in 12 minutes (it may take us amateurs a bit longer at first). With only a handful of ingredients, they argue there’s no reason to order in or reach for a quick and easy dinner when you can make this mouthwatering masterpiece in 30 mins flat (prep-time included). Try it tonight and wow your family (and yourself) with how quick, easy and enjoyable home cooking can really be.

How to Make Creamy Carbonara
Chef Sous Chef is a Canadian food blog based in Toronto, inspired by the joy of cooking. Their intention is to share wholesome recipes made at home with real food ingredients that are as visually beautiful as they are delicious, and to inspire a love of being in the kitchen. In addition to their Classic Carbonara, you can find countless other recipes on their blog that will inspire you to get back in the kitchen and enjoy the food-making process. We especially love the beautiful hummus they created for us in our first Adulting Event at Empire Phoenix, check it out here.
