[1]Our partner Foodbeast [2] shares breaking food news, trendsetting recipes, and more with us. Today, Brandi Milloy and Elie Ayrouth set the record straight with these common food words you are probably mispronouncing [3].

It's that moment when you're eyeballing a dish on the menu with a name you're not quite sure how to pronounce. Seared foie gras with sautéed pears wrapped in phyllo dough. You feel like you're back in Kindergarten and the teacher is asking you to read Where the Wild Things Are to the class. You momentarily consider ordering the grilled cheese burger instead, because at least you can't f*** that up.

Well, we've got your back. After running a quick poll, we gathered the top mispronounced food terms — just make sure you're ready for a low key foodie shock. Turns out, you've probably been saying bruschetta wrong your entire life and no, that's not the way to say hors d'oeuvre (unless you really want to offend your date).

So check out the video below and see how many out of the 15 food terms you get correct!
