Ok, I will follow do you say Jalapeno

I love watching food shows, but sadly I've never heard of a chef who says Jalapeno correctly. Emeril makes me cringe. Being from California and living in a Mexican Food mecca, also being able to speak Spanish....Jalapeno is pronounced...halla-pen-yo. With a tilde over the 'n'. Not hollowpen-o, or hallowpeenya, or any other way.

Also, hearing skawns for scones, paystees for pasties, (even by Alton on a pie episode years ago...I guess he's never been to a Las Vegas show)...drives me nuts.

What mispronunciations of your favorite foods makes you cringe? What are the correct pronunciations?
