I think I am pronouncing it wrong! Is the accent on the first or second syllable?
I believe it's originally pronounced with the accent on the second...fonDANT, but it became americanized to FONdant. Up to you. I hear it both ways.
In french the accent is on the second syllable, in english it's on the first, you guys do everything backwards..LOL
Thanks for asking that question! I've been wondering about that, too. I have always accented the first syllable, but lately have been hearing it on the second.
Thanks to those who posted the answers and links
I pronounce it to where it sounds like 'fondunt', but I'm from the south, so you may not want to go by me!! LOL!!!
That is an awesome website! Thanks!
Hey ntertayneme, Thanks for that link. That will come in handy a lot!
Here in TX, we say "that rubbery stuff that ya' put over that cake":
I agree with the " rubbery stuff". My hubby calls it cake doh. Instead of Play Doh.
Thanks for the dictionary link. I have been wondering if I was pronouncing ganache properly.....(I was) hehe
