How to pronounce
Coq au vin

Coq au vin is a traditional chicken-based French dish. Coq au vin is made by braising the chicken with wine, lardons, onions and mushrooms, but in some variations, garlic and brandy may be added as well.
The name coq au vin literally means "cock with wine". The traditional recipe would be made with cock or rooster, but is now usually made with normal chicken.
The correct pronunciation of coq au vin in French is cohk oh vah(n). In the word "coq" the o is pronounced with a closed "oh" sound, while the "q" is pronounced with a "k" sound. The second word, "au", is pronounced like the "o" in "coq", so with that same closed "oh" sound. The final word "vin" is slightly more complicated. The "i" is pronounced with an open "ah" sound, but the final "n" is a typical French nasal "n" that is barely pronounced, as you can hear in the audio pronunciation.
