Jamie Oliver sets record straight on how to say 'spaghetti bolognese'

Jamie Oliver sets the record straight on the correct way to abbreviate ‘spaghetti bolognese’ – so are you saying it right?

Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver has settled a heated debate on how to abbreviate ‘spaghetti bolognese’ during Wednesday’s instalment of The Project.

Host Waleed Aly told the 45-year-old, who appeared on the Australian talk show via a live link from his London home, that he referred to the popular dish as ‘spag bol’ while his co-host Peter Helliar used the term ‘spag bog’.

After hearing the two variations, the Brit couldn’t help but chuckle as he admitted a ‘bog’ was used to describe a toilet in England.

Settled! Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver (pictured) has settled a heated debate on how to abbreviate ‘spaghetti bolognese’ during Wednesday’s instalment of The Project.

Jamie said: ‘In the UK, a bog is a toilet! If he [Peter] really wants to call it a spaghetti toilet… I mean, I’m not a marketeer, but the marketing on the ‘spaghetti toilet’ is probably not a great idea!’

Referencing the panic buying of toilet paper in response to the coronavirus pandemic, Carrie Bickmore hilariously amused: ‘Given how much toilet paper we’ve bought, maybe it is spag bog in Australia!’

The foodie was on the show to promote his new cooking book, 7 Ways, which aims to give people new ideas for the ingredients they regularly purchase.

Awkward: After hearing the two variations, the Brit couldn’t help but chuckle as he admitted a ‘bog’ was used to describe a toilet in England.

Oliver has been broadcasting his Channel 4 show Keep Cooking and Carry On from his home during the pandemic to give viewers ideas on what to cook.

This comes after Jamie Oliver was given the go-ahead to build a greenhouse to grow vegetables in his £6million Essex mansion.

He got the green light from the council to start work on the traditional timber-framed vegetable patch at his Grade-I listed 70-acre mansion estate – Spains Hall – in Finchingfield, Essex.

The TV star bought the country mansion at the start of 2019 and had building work done on the house before he moved in with wife Jools and their five children.

Jamie and Jools are parents to Poppy, 18, Daisy, 17, Petal, 11, Buddy, nine, and River Rocket, four.

In April 2020, the Jamie Oliver Group confirmed that 20 of its 120 employees had been furloughed because they were unable to work during lockdown.
