I watch Beat Bobby Flay and he uses Calabrian chilies in about 25% of his cooking competitions, he always says Ca- lab-ree-an - so I'm sure jsaras is right - since he is not Italian  :-D

Hey, I make pizza, wine and I play a mean accordion.  Iíve gotta be Italian somewhere in my ancestry!

I think Norm probably meant Bobby Flay isn't Italian :)

Every now an then I hear the proper way to say something in Italian and I laugh at how wrong the pronunciation has been in my head. A good example is Cento tomatoes. Turned out it's not "sent-o."

If you see a "c" think of it as "ch".  You'll be fine.

You'd think I'd figure it out but I was screwing up De Cecco pasta for a long time and recently heard Da Michele pronounced properly...

I can't find the video but it was posted relatively recently. In the video, it was pronounced "Da Mick Ellie."

My full name is Jonathan and sometimes people spell it Johnathan. To me, that always looked like Johanne-athan or "Yo hon a than" which is probably one of the reasons I have this problem.

My dad was from Calabria. Malito, Cosenza to be precise. MUCH Mafia presence.
