How to Pronounce Worcestershire Sauce

(YouTube link)

Italian chef Pasquale Sciarappa speaks English much better than I speak Italian, but his struggle with the pronunciation of Worcestershire sauce is priceless. The sauce is named after the county in England, Worcestershire, meaning the shire of Worcester. An American would sound it out as written if they didn’t know the British pronounce it “WOOStershur.” However, the Italian pronunciation of the phonemes as written is quite different. After Sciarappa struggles with the common pronunciation, he gives us a rundown of how it would sound in Italian.      

Chef Pasquale has a recipe website and a YouTube channel devoted to Italian recipes plus a series on Italy. -via Tastefully Offensive

No matter who says it or how they say it I always giggle because I immediately think of the Swedish Chef. "Worcestershire, der de der."

There's a city called Worcester in Massachusetts. Whenever you hear advertisements that use the name, you get all sorts of different pronunciations, with war-sess-tur being the most common. But in Mass, they call it Wis-tahhhhh.
