    I grew up in PA in a large Italian family( mom's side) and my Polish side(dad's)...lots of great food memories from my childhood. When I moved to KY with my parents at age 20, life changed a bit. Learned much southern cooking, had never heard of before. Now, living in OH with my son and his family and am questioning how we were taught to pronounce, "gnocchi"...here in OH they say "noki"..I was taught "nyawki"...I guess it really doesn't matter. Found a recipe for the best soup I've tasted in a long time at Olive Garden..Chicken & Gnocchi Soup..it's the best and very easy soup..making it this coming weekend

    Remember that wherever you are in the USA you will have the influence of regional accents - just like in Italy each region has its own dialect.

    I am from NYC, and a first generation Southern Italian/American, and gnocchi is pronounced "nyokee" not "no kee" (which leaves out the "y" sound that the gno makes).

    gnocchi:
    "gno" = nyo (the g is silent)
    "cch" = a hard K
    "i" = ee like tree

    nyokee would be the correct pronunciation, that said....keep in mind regional accents. What you may be hearing in Ohio is the local/regional Ohio accent combined with "nyokee"

    Gnocchi is one of those frequently mispronounced Italian words in English speaking countries; "bruschetta" is another. icon_confused.gif

    As mentioned above ch in Italian is always pronounced with a hard K sound.
    Properly pronounced, the word is brus-Ket-ta, not like many restaurant servers insist "bru-sh-etta" (the sh being pronounced like the sh in shush) icon_evil.gif

    With you on the bruschetta, one of my pet peeves. The other is calling a single sandwich a "panini". It's a panino, panini is the plural. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Since you brought up singular/plural.....the singular of gnocchi is "gnocco." A plate full would be gnocchi, one of those delicious little morsels on the plate would be "gnocco".

    I'm on cast iron cookware forums.

    People type "aebleskivers" all the time. I asked in the Scandinavian forum on here, and aebleskiver is both singular and plural.

    Plett is both singular and plural, too.
