Food Network Humor points out that Guy Fieri has a bit of trouble when it comes to pronouncing his own surname. Although we’ve heard him introduced as “Fierrri”, he’s been caught saying it “Fietti” — even though he was born Guy Ferry. And don’t get us started on Giada De Laurentiis‘ habit of giving every ingredient in her arsenal the full Italian treatment.
Then there’s the Everyday Italian herself. Watch the whole segment below if you want to know how to make pizza with smoked mozzarella and pancetta, or just the first minute for the most Italian pronounciation of the aforementioned ingredients.
The funniest part with both of them is when the over-pronounciation comes in the middle of a sentence of perfectly normal, American English. I’m Swiss and German, but you don’t hear me saying, “Oh yeah, I had a delicious BRATVVURRST for lunch yesterday.”
