Don't Sound Like a Tool: The Most Mispronounced Menu Words of All Time
|Confit: Pronounced konh-FEE|
A while back, I put out a Twitter call for other often-mispronounced food words. I compiled the following list from readers' suggestions, adding to it a couple of words I involuntarily screw up (alembic, offal) time and time again. All pronunciations were checked against Merriam-Webster's, with the exception of gyro. (Really? Zheero? For shame, M-W.)
