I love the balsamic thing you describe!

I've gotten so used to carbonara with American bacon (one of my favorite foods with all its smoky salty goodness) that the unsmoked dry-cured variety frankly puts me off. Likewise prosciutto, with its weird floral smell. Call me a Philistine.

Irish or "back" bacon, on the other hand, esp coated with yellow pea meal, is a whole other experience... but I digress.

Re: I love the balsamic thing you describe!

I do like prosciutto, but not in cooking, usually. And I prefer the German Schinken to its Italian cousin.

The nice thing about the balsamic solution -- I water it down -- is that it makes the contrast between noodle and bacon less jarring. Crunch works well often, but I'm not so into it when I'm eating pasta.
