Nigella Lawson’s pronunciation of ‘microwave’ needs to be heard to be believed – Evening Standard


Nigella Lawson has actually whipped fans into a frenzy over her distinct pronunciation of “microwave”.

While some social media users liked the decadent dish, others considered it over-indulgent.
One user tweeted: “I believe its affordable to state only Nigella might get away with teaching us how to make toast.”.

Splashing some full fat milk into the pan, Nigella discussed that she had actually warmed it in the “meecro-wa-vay”.

” Henceforth, mecrowavay will forever be in my vocabulary and microwave will disappear Queen @Nigella_Lawson has spoken,” another user joked.
” Eternally grateful to Nigella Lawson for letting us understand weve all been mispronouncing microwave for the last 50 (or so) years,” tweeted another.

Nigella replied: “Well, I do say it like that, but not due to the fact that I believe thats how its in fact noticable.”.
It is not the very first time Nigellas cookery program has captivated audiences long after the programme has aired..

The utterance promptly sent Twitter into meltdown, with one fan explaining it as a “specifying minute of 2020”.

The star chef spoke of the common household appliance during Monday nights episode of her BBC2 series Cook, Eat, Repeat.
The 60-year-old domestic goddess was preparing some mashed potatoes when she provided the playful variation on the word.

And podcast host Scott Bryan commented: “Nigella pronounces microwave as “micro-wav-ay” so that is how we all need to pronounce it now. Those are the rules.”
Nigella later on stated she did not believe that was the way the word ought to be noticable..
One audience tweeted: “Am I the just one who believed @Nigella_Lawson was being ironical when she pronounced Meecro-wavé ?! Now, Im beginning to believe she truly pronounces it like that?”.
