What's EEOV?

Frankie's picture

I have seen this mentioned on R, Ray's shows and in blogs. It is my understanding it is Extra Virgin Olive Oil but the letters don't add up to EEOV.

If it is, does anyone know how it was created?

If it is not EVOO - Extra Virgin Olive Oil - can someone please set me straight?

Originally I thought it was a typo but it is what she calls olive oil. Maybe I just caught her mispeak.

Have we entered the world of R.Ray-isms?

Flay your Suffolk bought-this-morning sole with organic hand-cracked pepper and blasted salt. Thrill each side for four minutes at torchmark haut. Interrogate a lemon. Embarrass any tough roots from the samphire. Then bamboozle till it's al dente with that certain je ne sais quoi.

I think it's a typo... I've only ever heard RR call it EVOO.

She's saying EVOO, it's just her wacked accent.

Frequently after watching her show I hear those letters in her accented voice in my sleep!!

Ooooooh, never thought our New York accent was wacked!  She's from somewhere in the Adirondack Mts in upstate NY -- a beautiful part of the country, and about 60 miles north of where we lived before we moved to FL last year.  Now the New Yawk, Longeyelend accents are a different thing.  So are the Rochester/Buffalo accents.

Shoechick is a product of England. To her, there's accents and then there's accents. And then of course, there's accessories.

I've spent a lot of time in New York as well as have many friends there, her accent isn't normal...it's just annoying and "wacked".  No offence to New Yorkers. :)

Her accent is close to what we --at my college--called "city". It was what Cleveland had, some Chicago folk, some Cincy, etc.  I had a roomie from Buffalo with it.

Funny, I don't notice her having an accent.  ;·)

Sounds more like "little girl" speak to me than a regional accent. Dramatic and exaggerated, sometimes coy. The constant giggling certainly goes along with that. Sometimes her eyes look like they're going to pop out of her head. She just hasn't grown up yet ;-)

I've heard Alton Brown say it too.

When you say it like that, it sounds like the sort of thing my email filter sends to the spam folder ;-)
