Nigella Lawson leaves fans baffled with the strange thing that she pronounces “microwave”.
The chef and TV presenter put her fans in a frenzy when the latest episode of her show, Cook, Eat, Repeat was broadcast on the BBC on Monday.
In the episode, the Brown Bombshell is seen cooking a storm as she explains how to cook brown butter – mashed potatoes full of vegetables – for food-loving viewers.
But when she called for Chef Mike’s help, the 60-year-old could be heard pronouncing the device in a very strange way.
“I still need a little bit of the milk – full cream – that I heated up in the micro-wa-fi,” she said, while it cracked while cooking.
Nigella sent viewers into a breakdown when they took to social media to discuss her bizarre vocalization.
Many were left hysterically while others wondered if they had heard the epic TV bug properly.
One took for Twitter To write: “The way Nigella_Lawson just uttered the word ‘microwave’ is a defining moment in 2020. #CookEatRepeat”.
Another joke: “I like it last night. Nigella_Lawson, he told us we said the microwave incorrectly the whole time. General service.”
Third announcement: “From now on, the word ‘mecrowavay’ should remain forever in my vocabulary and the microwave will cease to exist.
“Thanks and good night.”
And a fourth wrote: “How do I make Nigella Lawson’s pronunciation in the microwave as a ringtone?”
Despite the mockery on social media, it looks like Nigella might simply show off her cultured side.
The chef seems to confirm that her pronunciation is closer to the way Italians and Spaniards say microwave.
Her account liked a tweet from a fan that she explained to other viewers, which read:[It’s] Pronounced as an Italian or Spanish person mee-kro-wa-ign /, that is, the correct way. “
Her latest cooking show has racked up massive numbers in recent weeks as viewers look to the TV personality for inspiration for festive recipes.
She left fans in awe again last month after sharing her “two-stage” hack for making the perfect slice of toast in a long five-minute segment.
In the clip, Foodie shows a piece of toast that already had butter melted in it as she talks to viewers through butter and re-spreading the bread, before rolling out the sea salt chips.
But viewers weren’t convinced that Nigella’s breakthrough was revolutionary Twitter To ruthlessly mock her for this part.
