    I've always said coo-min but have heard people say cue-min or does it depend where you come from?
    Cumm-in... As in "summon".

    I say 'Cue-Min'.

    But I have heard it pronounced as 'Cumm-In' and 'Coo-Min' as well. All by various TV chefs and non-Chefs!

    So really, who knows!

    That's unfortunate. It sounds crass pronounced like that.

    Apparently cue-min is also acceptable?
