    I'm saving some recipes and am not sure how to pronounce the following:

    Alla Checca
    Bechamel
    Aebelskiver
    Arancini
    Olivieh

    I think I know how to pronounce most, but I'd like to be sure, so as not to embarrass myself. :)

    Well, the only one I know for sure is bechamel...it's "Beh-shuh-mel".

    Assuming Alla Checca is Italian (no idea of it is), "Ch" is pronounced with a hard "c" like CAT. So it MIGHT be "Al-uh Keh-Kuh".

    Arancini should be "Ar-un-chee-nee".

    Never heard the other two!

    Im not sure if this is right but I googled it and

    Alla Checca is pronounced kind of like this:

    Alla Kay Ca

    Just don't draw out the a in Kay but it's still a long A sound. :-)

    Aebleskiver is a-bla-ski-va
