Obviously I don't live in Canada, so this chocolate isn't as familiar to me (although I use it and love it). How do you pronounce Callebaut? I don't like mispronouncing things and I'm not sure how to say it. I've worked hard to overcome my southwest Missouri "accent" and I like to say things properly!!!!! Please help!

TIA,
Suz

'Cal' like California
'e' like elephant
'beau' like Beau Bridges

Cal-e-beau = Callebaut

Now if I'm wrong, I'm in big trouble.... icon_lol.gif

Tripletmom you are right! It is called Bernard Callibaut chocolate (spelling of the last name is wrong I'm very sure!) I have one near me but have never tasted the chocolate. Everybody says it is TO DIE FOR! I personally don't know.....guess I should try some! icon_biggrin.gif

It is to die for! Not as sweet as Swiss chocolate....I tried the some from the Bernard Callebaut shop in Calgary, that's where I first heard of it. Very luxurious!

I only heard of this Chocolate a couple of years ago, from a friend of mine who is a chef and raves both about Callebaut and Vahlrona as being two of the very best chocolates in the world. I have no idea how to pronounce it myself but just say it the same way she does, which is very close to what tripletmom said except for the last part
'Cal' like California
'e' like elephant
'bear' like a grisly (hehehehe)
but like i said, im only going by how my friend pronounces it : )
Do we need to contact a distributor??
ahahha

Thanks, I was saying it correctly then! (Whew!!!!)

YUM-O (to quote Racheal Ray). This is some seriously good stuff!!!!!

Good thing I have to order it online. If I were near a store that I could buy it in, there would be some serious troubles!

Thanks again!

I live in Calgary, Alberta, and have had the pleasure of working with Bernard Callebaut. He is a Flemish-speaking Belgian, therefore he pronounces his last name "Kull-about" Because Belgium is formally bilingual, his name may also be pronounced the French way, which is "Kull-bow". I've heard many strange and wonderful ways to say it, but here it is right from the owner's mouth....

Ok while we're at it...

This Cricut cake thing- Is it cry-cut or cricket? My mom says cricket but I thought it was cry-cut.

AnnieCahill - it is cricket, like the bug, like the little green bug that is in their logo......
