Ben Cotto (a)
Pronounced: Bèn Còt-to (Dizionario Italiano Garzanti). Bain Co-toe (Roberto's Americanized version of the word).
Meaning: Well Done or well cooked Non mi piace il pollo ben cotto (I do not like well done chicken). Voglio la mia bistecca ben cotta. (I want my steak well cooked). Note: I show the pronunciation of each Word of the Day as found in Dizionario Italiano Garzanti, followed by Roberto's (Americanized) pronunciation of each daily word. To listen to a native Italian speaker say the Word of the Day click here, http:// Questa carne è ben cotto? (Is this meat well done?). /it/cotto, and click the audio symbol next to the word. At times, it is necessary to type the word in the search box. If you have friends or family members traveling to Italy, especially anyone heading to or near Lucca or anyone wanting to learn a bit of Italian, please let them know about my website, www.welovelucca.com. Grazie mille!
