Nigella Lawson is better known as one of the world’s more homely celeb cooks, however, the 60-year-old actually left university with a degree in medieval and modern languages before becoming a food author and critic.
So, you’d reckon Nigella would have no problems pronouncing her quesadillas from her charcuteries.
However, British viewers to her show Cook, Eat, Repeat on Monday night were left stunned at Nigella’s attempt to pronounce microwave while making mashed potatoes.
Check it out below. Happens at the 15-second mark.
Social media soon lit up at this new culinary word that had managed to escape the rest of humankind.
One Twitter user wrote: “Microwaves shall henceforth be pronounced as meekro-wahvay. So says your Queen @Nigella_Lawson.”
Another added: “Eternally grateful to Nigella Lawson for letting us know we’ve all been mispronouncing microwave for the last 50 (or so) years.”
However, the culinary queen herself soon cleared up any confusion telling her Twitter followers: “Well, I do say it like that, but not because I think that’s how it’s actually pronounced.”
Still, B&T reckons Nigella’s mashed spuds would be pretty darn fantastic.
