While we are on the subject of Italian delights, let’s take a quick look at another slightly less common one. Bruschetta is a delicious piece of toasted bread upon which is spread some equally delicious topping—typically the likes of tapenade or other spreads.

This word is most often pronounced “brush-etta” and Italian does indeed have a “sh” sound, but the “sh” sound in Italian is written “sc” as in “lascia” (pronounced la-sha”). In Bruschetta we have the typical Italian pronunciation of “ch” which is hard. So the correct way to say these yummy treats is “brusketa”.
