6 Tzatziki


7 Provolone


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

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

Rioja = ree-oh-ha

I'm French and this is so funny how they wrote the words! I love the way English speakers talk!

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

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

Nope, I know how to say all of those. I like to tease people who pronounce bruschetta with the ch as in "cheese" sound. It's an Italian word. To have the ch sound it would be spelled bruscetta, no h.

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

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