/ Source: TODAY

Behind the scenes at TODAY, our awesome segment producers are extra careful to prepare the anchors with how to properly pronounce everything from tricky guests names (Gyllenhaal, anyone?) to foods that require a full-on French accent.

Our anchors nail it pretty much every time, but since everyone can use a little extra help sometimes, we've created an A-Z guide on how to correctly say often mispronounced food words.

See below for the correct pronunciations, and watch the videos to see our staffers get schooled on the right way to say their favorite foods. Newsflash, even editors get these foods wrong sometimes!
