Brits Overseas Don't Get Alfalfa

Jamie Olivier, celebrity chef and apparently dyslexic, pronounces alfalfa as Al-far-far. Just happened to watch a couple episodes of Jamie's 30-Minute Meals, where he makes "beautiful salads" using Al-far-far, known as lucerne in the UK.

Still, this is not as bad as local TVB celebrity Jason Chan choosing to completely dismiss alfalfa as a typo and instead calling it Alpha Alpha (see OUHK’s Sandwich Filler is Alpha Alpha Not Alfalfa).

Brits Abroad … only for our entertainment!
