Spaghetti Bolognese

Antonio Carluccio is setting the record straight.

We've been making spaghetti bolognese all wrong, according to the owned of Carluccio's.

Antonio Carluccio has heavily condemned us Brits for our use of herbs in the dish, which is almost sacrilege.

Apparently the dish as we know it, doesn't even exist in Italy!


Fruit in season - abundant JAM time! Such a delight!

"In Italy, it is tagliatelle bolognese, with freshly made tagliatelle and bolognese without any herbs whatsoever," the Carluccio bigwig said at the Cheltenham Literature Festival.

"When you (Brits) think Italy, you start to put oregano, basil, parsley, garlic – which is not all right."


Luckily, Mr. Carluccio has shared the recipe for the 'correct' way to make a spag bol on his website, so next time, you can give this one a go...
