Are you sure you pronounce champagne right?

There are several food items, dishes and drinks that we have been pronouncing wrong all these years.

Croissant: This French piece of light crescent-shaped rolls are perfect to eat for breakfast. The correct pronunciation is:

Hummus: Originated in the middle east, this soft, smooth and creamy dip is made from crushed chickpeas, oil, and lemon juice. Eat it with fresh Pita Bread or as a dip.

Hoom-uhs

Jalapeno: These small hot peppers are usually used in Mexican cooking but work well as sandwich garnish, pizza toppings, and in dips.

Hah-luh-peyn-yoh

Risotto: Risotto belongs to north Italian. It is a rice dish made with meat, fish or vegetable broth.

Salmon: If you love sea-food, Salmon must be on your list. The fish is cooked in different ways across the world. And in case you have still not tried it till now, try Salmon Sashimi at least once.

Wasabi: If we have bhoot jolokia, they have wasabi. It is a condiment and is quite pungent. You just can’t eat it all at once, well, not even a spoon. Make sure you first taste a pinch of it.
