18 Cheese Names You’re Pronouncing Wrong [WATCH]


In another edition of things you’re doing wrong (and other ways to run your life) comes our guide to pronouncing popular cheeses around the world. We recruited Popsugar to help us out, because Elie has a tendency to butcher a Denny’s menu, and got to taking your food game to the next level.

We suggest bookmarking this one for future reference. Particular scenarios in which it might come in handy include: wine parties your significant other drags you to, shopping at the overpriced cheese “boutique” that opened down the street, and random opportunities to throw it into conversations.

Friend: My kid is the funniest thing, he just won the spelling bee at school today.

You: Oh, that’s cute. But can he pronounce Ossau-Iraty? Didn’t think so. I recommend putting him up for adoption.

You’re welcome.

I also watched the “19 food brand names you’re pronouncing wrong” and Elie just HAD to go there with the “flameass”, LOL!

That was great.

Taco Bell really should have kept that. It could have gone down in history as the coolest fast food item name ever.

I don’t know who you hang around, but most people I’ve encountered do not pronounce ricotta properly. She didn’t even pronounce it properly in this video, which just goes to show you.
