Saturday Kitchen’s Matt Tebbutt was amazed that Paul Ainsworth couldn’t say the word ‘chorizo.’

The TV chef was making ‘a dish born out of lockdown’, which included fresh fish and the Spanish pork sausages – but Paul refused to say the word out loud.

‘I want to get the fish cooked, I got one here for you Charlotte without the… spicy pork sausages,’ he began, giving Charlotte a plate without the sausage.

Matt jokingly asked: ‘How do you pronounce it?’

‘Um, could you help me please, Matt?’ Paul responded, needing pronunciation help. ‘It’s genuinely a word I find difficult. I’m not scared to admit that on live TV.’

Matt couldn’t help himself and repeated how Paul usually says it, yelling out: ‘Chor-eet-sio.’

Paul admitted he would give the word a go when he got into the swing of things and got a little braver, and he was true to his word.

‘You want to kind of caramelise this sausage for a good few minutes so it’s nice and crispy,’ he later explained.

‘And then you’re releasing all the oils from the chorizo.’

In case you are all wondering, it’s pronounced cho-ree-tho.

Fans took to Twitter to help Paul with it, with many teaching him how it should be said.

‘Matt, chorizo is not pronounced with an “s” sound. It’s a “th” sound!’ one posted.

Another kept the tweet simple and commented: ‘Chur-Ree Tho. #SaturdayKitchen.’

This wasn’t the first time there was an issue with how to pronounce certain foods, as Matt caused a stir last month when he pronounced ‘scone’ like ‘cone.’

Considering it’s been a never-ending debate on whether it should be said like ‘cone’ or ‘gone’, we’ll let it slide.
