Ischia- Correct way to pronounce
« on: August 21, 2012, 09:41:42 PM »
I stold some of Craig's starter.. Just Kidding he sent me home with a nice starter package in a jar.  I have managed to keep it semi-happy; it smells sourdoughish and doesn't get all hoochey unless I starve it (not intentional) for a few days.

Craig lost a non-food related bet at the Summit; but I digress...

So, what is the correct pronunciation of Ischia?
1) No, I'm not going to Google translate it.
2) No, I'm not going to search the internet for answers.


A)Iss. chia-  Like Chia Pet
B)Ick. See-a
C) Shocka-con
d) E-Chechia

Really, I am lost.  Somebody please help. ::)

That is hilarious Colonel.

Norma and her pitch fork.  Norma are you putting hay in Steve's oven?

Isk.Yagh it is.  What a great learning experience.

Don,

Lol, that still doesn't mean I knew how to pronounce Ischia.  Just ask Steve how I try to pronounce some words in Italian.  :-D

I also think Peter was using his falsetto voice in his link for everyone to understand how to pronounce Ischia.  It sure sounded like it to me.   :-D

Actually, because of the rigidity of a just baked pizza, a pitchfork inspired peel wouldn't be a bad idea.  It would be far lighter than a traditional metal peel.

Just thinking out loud  ;D
