There’s a Welsh television cook on DSTV now. She’s on one of the many cooking programmes we have on TV. She is mostly enthusiastic about Italian food and Italian cooking and she does her job with zeal and gusto so she’s a pleasure to watch.
One thing she’s very particular about is using the correct Italian pronunciation for any Italian words she uses while she’s speaking. So you hear a good English accent punctuated here and there by an Italian word, enunciated with a serioius Italian accent. Like parmesan cheese and porcini mushrooms. So that’s PARMEZAAN and PORCHEENEE. No messing about with the milder, anglicized version of those words that all the other English chefs use.
Good strong pronunciation for good strong dishes, I suppose.
