By Hollie Borland

Mary Berry has caused controversy amongst fellow cooks when she added double cream and white wine to her bolognese recipe.

We may have originally picked up the recipe from the Italians but as a nation we've adopted spaghetti bolognese with open arms. You can always rely on a trusty spag bol to fall back on. 

So don't mess with it okay? Mary Berry is finding this out the hard way.

When the 81-year-old national treasure decided to take on the British (!) staple on her Every Day cooking show, she enraged viewers by adding DOUBLE CREAM to her recipe. 

The internet kicked off. 

First here was shock

Then there was outrage

And then there was the downright sarcastic

And those who feared that if they follow Mary's recipe, they'd die of a heart attack

But is it all that strange? Because according to the Italian Academy of Cooking’s authentic Bolognese recipe written on request of the Chamber of Commerce back in 1982, we should all be including milk in our sauces. 

It seems that everyone has their own quirky way of making the traditional dish, adding secret ingredients like Worcester sauce or a drop of Marmite. So stop giving Mezza Bezza a hard time, okay?
