Praise For Onions Etcetera: The Essential Allium Cookbook - more than 150 recipes for leeks, scallions, garlic, shallots, ramps, chives and every sort of onion

(Onions Etcetera) is one of the best single-ingredient cookbooks I've encountered . . .Kate and Guy cover all the bases with this visually beautiful book with photographs being plentiful and enticing . . .This is one of those books that I will abuse with food spatters, sticky notes and love. I have mixed feelings about single-ingredient cookbooks - I either love them when they are done well and the collection of recipes are standouts - or I'm not fond of them due to the fact that the recipes are lacking luster. Onions Etcetera lacks nothing - it is stunning, full of deliciousness and written with a passion of not only onions, but good food.

Onions, as all of us who cook know, form the basis for innumerable recipes, but this book puts them centre stage, covering the whole allium family, and does so persuasively that I don’t believe there is a single recipe in this book I don’t want to cook.
- Nigella Lawson

While onions—in one form or another—are included in most of the dishes I cook, they’re rarely the star. Enter Kate Winslow and Guy Ambrosino’s new book, Onions Etcetera, a book devoted to the omnipresent alliums.

Sometimes a cookbook, even one 334 pages long, is very easy to describe. Onions Etcetera is magnificent, as perfect as a cookbook can be. . . You want supreme food and don’t have time to visit Paris? Open the pages of Onion Etcetera and explore the world.

Even for the most avid collectors, a single-ingredient-focused cookbook can seem like an indulgent use of shelf space, but this set of recipes, with its globe-trekking span and playful, bold flavors, is both essential and varied enough to invite return exploration.

All of the recipes are creative and inspiring, and also super accessible for the home cook — pretty much the cookbook trifecta…
