Igela Lawson has driven fans into a frenzy for her unique pronunciation of “microwave”.
The celebrity chef spoke of common home appliances during Monday night’s episode of his BBC2 series Cook, Brick, Repeat.
The on0-year-old domesticated goddess was preparing some pruned potatoes while proposing a humorous variation on the term.
By pouring some full-fat milk into the pan, Nigeria explained that he had heated it in a “macro-wa-way”.
The utterance quickly sent Twitter to Meltdown, with one fan describing it as “the defining moment of 2020”.
“From now on, ‘Macroveys’ will be in my vocabulary forever and the queen of microwaves will cease to exist,” said Nigela_Lawson, “another user joked.
Another tweeted: “We are forever grateful to Nigella Lawson for letting us know that we have been misusing the microwave for the last 50 (or so) years.
And podcast host Scott Bryan commented: “Nigella has declared the microwave a” microwave-eye “so we should all pronounce it now. That’s the rule.
This is not the first time that Niger’s cookie show has captivated viewers long after the show aired.
While some social media users like the perishable recipe, others find it extra fun.
One user tweeted: “I think it makes perfect sense that just teaching us how to make toast can make us run away.”
