Why is there a perky English woman narrating that?

invicta - 02 Sep 2018 12:50:56 (#2 of 25)

Why does she think a Pasty is made of bread?

RosyLovelady - 02 Sep 2018 14:23:29 (#3 of 25)

And she thinks the verb to frequent is pronounced in the same way as in frequent showers.

JohnIlly - 02 Sep 2018 14:40:30 (#4 of 25)

She also pronounces fillet as though it is the French word filet. Mind you, she probably caught that from Macdonald's Filet-o-fish.

She sounds Ozzie to me.

Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and fillet gumbo



Pronounced the French way in the Bayou.

AlanII - 02 Sep 2018 14:51:38 (#6 of 25)

Sounds English to me but, brought up on Neighbours

How do you pronounce it? We pronounce them the same.

JohnIlly - 02 Sep 2018 15:06:28 (#8 of 25)

The verb has the stress on the second syllable.

AlanII - 02 Sep 2018 15:06:40 (#9 of 25)

Free-quent

AlanII - 02 Sep 2018 15:07:20 (#10 of 25)

John puts it far better

popstar7 - 02 Sep 2018 15:11:56 (#11 of 25)

Quite appealing, some of those.

AlanII - 02 Sep 2018 15:13:07 (#12 of 25)

They are

otraynor - 02 Sep 2018 15:23:32 (#13 of 25)

Indeed. I'd pay a fortune for a Cornish pasty about now.

JohnIlly - 02 Sep 2018 15:27:15 (#14 of 25)

I have always thought that a good sausage sandwich with fried onions beats any burger.

popstar7 - 02 Sep 2018 15:32:09 (#15 of 25)

Swedish burger and the fish and chips places would get my attention. Pretzels and pasties don't appeal.

Bonusy - 02 Sep 2018 15:43:12 (#16 of 25)

Sounds like your bog standard E4/BBC3 female narrator to my ear

Filé gumbo.

Filé = ground dried sassafras leaves. Used as a flavouring and thickening ingredient. Was banned for a while due to suspected carcinogenic properties.

bossab2 - 02 Sep 2018 18:05:25 (#18 of 25)

There must be scope for opening some chippies.

AdrianNTierney - 02 Sep 2018 18:05:55 (#19 of 25)

Filé = ground dried sassafras leaves.

Sassafras tea, made from the dried leaves, is a folk remedy for constipation.

otraynor - 02 Sep 2018 18:13:25 (#20 of 25)

Agreed. Americans are already familiar with fish and chips, from the faux Irish pub if nowhere else.

Chippies are all over Toronto, but how they'd do in Dayton, Ohio, I don't know.
