I can’t tell you the number of times I had someone correct the way I said Bruschetta when I waited tables. I was pronouncing it correctly and they were WRONG. In the spirit of working for tips I would let it slide, but it drove me a little nuts. So you can image my pleasure when I saw this article on the Top 10 Mispronounced Foodie Words with Bruschetta(broo-SKEH-tah) topping the list. Image Via: Gourmet

I read that article last night. The comments were pretty amusing. My husband always makes fun of me when I pronounce Bruschetta (the correct way.) But then again he's English and says all kinds of things wrong. 😉

Ahhahaha. The funny thing is that I say a ton of things wrong, but I know it. I think it's funny when people are so certain.

This comment killed me. That is exactly how it would go.
