You have NO IDEA how to pronounce sous vide!
Trust me, you’re not alone. I had no idea either. And hundreds of others are also clueless too!
So without further ado.
How to Pronounce Sous Vide
Sous vide is pronounced “soo-veed” with a hard D at the end.
Let’s dissect this a bit.
Sous vide is a French term that translates to “under vacuum”. Sous translates to “under” while vide translates to “vacuum”.
When saying “sous”, the “ou” is pronounced as a long o or “oo”. The second “s” is silent.
Vide is the most commonly mispronounced word. Most people leave off the “d”. When saying “vide”, the “i” is pronounced as a long “e” or “ee”. The final “e” is silent so the last letter you hear and say is the “d”.
