Food Names You Could Be Pronouncing Wrong


Picture this: You’re in a restaurant and you look at the menu. When the waiter comes around you ask for the Bruschetta, but pronounce it “Broo-shet-ah,” when it’s really pronounced “Broo-sket-ah.” Tricky little thing, right? See how many of these food items you could be saying wrong, and to make you feel better, just know that we’ve been saying Bruschetta incorrectly our whole lives. Yikes.



Poutine is a heavenly Canadian dish that comes from Quebec. Ask for a plate of poutine, and you’ll get french fries with cheese curds on top smothered in gravy. You can get this savory hug on a plate all over Canada and some parts of the U.S. But how do you pronounce “poutine?”

It’s like this: Poo-tin. Not Poo-tine, like we’ve been saying ever since our Canadian friend mentioned bliss does come from deep fried potatoes covered in gravy cheese curds.
