15 Foods That You’ve Been Pronouncing Wrong Your Whole Life

Ever lived through that awkward moment where you pronounce something entirely wrong in a room full of people. A guy in my office has mispronounced the words “archives” and “falafel” in recent weeks, which got me to thinking. There must be loads of foods that people can’t pronounce correctly, especially since a foreign food craze has struck the nation, and with it loads of healthy (previously unknown) products.

It turns out there are loads of foods that get the public’s tongues in a twist. From your morning espresso, to your evening meal of gnocchi, mispronunciations are everywhere. Thankfully, we seek to educate people here at Twisted, and have produced a helpful list of foods and their correct pronunciations to make sure you’re not the laughing stock of your office. Sadly Stefan, it’s way too late for you.

Feeling a little more clued up? Good. Speaking from experience, there is nothing more cringeworthy than pronouncing a dish wrong in a restaurant, only to have the waiter correct you.
