***

Provolone is a semi-hard Italian cheese made from cow's milk. It is a member of the pasta filata family, which includes other popular Italian cheeses such as mozzarella and caciocavallo. Its flavor is mild yet tangy, with a slightly smoky note. The texture is elastic and smooth, making it perfect for slicing and melting.

Provolone is often used as a table cheese, as well as in sandwiches and other recipes. It is an excellent substitute for mozzarella in pizzas and can also be used in dishes such as lasagna and eggplant parmesan. Provolone is available in a variety of shapes and sizes, from small rounds to large wheels.

When buying provolone, look for a cheese with a glossy, yellow-brown rind. The interior should be smooth and creamy, with a slightly grainy texture. The flavor should be slightly tangy and salty, with a hint of nuttiness. Avoid cheeses with a dry, crumbly texture or a bitter aftertaste.

I know I say the Spanish wine Rioja wrong. How would you break it down?

Rioja = ree-oh-ha

I always pronounced 10 wrong. Hahaha. Thanks for the insight.

Bruschetta ... I really thought it was like Schmidt, Bru- shetta.... Funny...!

As long as you don't say "expresso" all else can be forgiven

It's ke-sa-di-ya actually.

Açaí is pronounced ah-sigh-ee!!! Not ah-sigh!

I'm Greek and the t's in tzatziki are actually pronounced

I guess if you are saying some of these with an American accent then the pronunciation here would be correct.

I say these correctly! But I can see how this would be helpful for others.
