It’s March – So I thought I’d celebrate the first of the month with a brand new layout!
HUGE thanks to Lance for designing my new page and transforming my rough sketch of the NK logo into a professional and creative design for the blog!
Here’s some Fun Foodie Reading: 10 Mispronounced Foodie Words to help sharpen your culinary language. I also found a more extensive list of the top 43 most mispronounced food words on the Village Voice Blog.
1. Bruschetta (broo-SKEH-tah)
2. Gnocchi (NYOH-kee)
3. Gyro (YEER-oh)
4. Huitlacoche (wheet-lah-KOH-chay)
5. Pouilly-Fuisse (poo-yee fwee-SAY)
6. Mole (MOH-lay)
7. Paczki (POONCH-key)
8. Pho (fuh)
9. Prosciutto (proh-SHOO-toe)
10. Sake (SAH-kay)
My favorite is definitely Quinoa, pronounced “keen-wah.” Last semester, while I was taking the 6-week Beginners Cooking course at Chef’s Inc. in Los Angeles, I was constantly asking Chef Margie if the “kee-NO-uh” was done yet? Really struggled with that one!
