Jamie Oliver confirms the correct way to abbreviate "spaghetti bolognese"

Jamie Oliver confirms the correct way to abbreviate "spaghetti bolognese"

Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver has finally settled the debate on how to properly abbreviate "spaghetti bolognese".

He confirmed it on the Wednesday night's episode of The Project.

Host Waleed Aly decided to pitch the debate to the chef as he appeared on the show via a live link from his London home.

Aly confirmed that he referred to the popular pasta dish as "spag bol" whereas his co-host Peter Helliar used the term "spag bog".

Jamie Oliver couldn't contain his giggles as he admitted that "bog" is a term used in Britain used to describe a toilet in England.

Jamie joked: "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!"

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