The Roman pasta specialty, cacio e pepe, is equally superb when applied to summer’s corn-on- the-cob and an excellent way to savor both Kampot Red and Black peppercorns. Should you wish to gild the “cob” further, go for the addition of crispy crumbled pancetta to take the recipe from cacio e pepe to carbonara.
