The Onion Book Hardcover – July 1, 1996
From Library Journal
The "onion" in the title refers to all members of the pungent allium family, including leeks, garlic, shallots, and scallions, not just the different varieties of onions available today. Food writer Roberts-Dominguez (The Mustard Cookbook, LJ 9/15/93) has come up with almost 200 recipes for these aromatic cousins, arranged by season and accompanied by abundant culinary facts and lore. This is not the first cookbook to focus on onions?Linda and Fred Griffith's Onion, Onion, Onion (LJ 8/94) includes dozens of recipes and some of the same background material. However, Roberts-Dominguez's recipes are different enough so that most collections will want to add.

Aside from the approximately 175 recipes, divided by season, many culinary questions about onions are addressed. How to avoid tears while cutting and peeling, slicing and dicing? Chop the onions inside a plastic bag, the author advises, and make sure they're well chilled. What is a remedy for dreaded onion breath? Try gnawing on an apple or sucking a citrus peel. It's clear from both the recipes and the bounty of information that she is quite knowledgeable on the subject. Barbara Jacobs
