I am not a chef or a caterer myself (not even close), but from what I am told, onions are often the "secret ingredient", which provides that WOW factor. In this book the onion is the star attraction. Here is a book that is as beautiful as it is basic. These easy to follow recipes will fit into your busy schedule without sacrificing taste and the photographs are so beautiful and enticing that the cookbook doubles as a coffee table book. This is a great gift idea!
Onions Etcetera is a BEAUTIFUL cookbook—so nicely and artfully photographed that you will want to make every recipe in here. I mean everything looks absolutely delicious. I started to bookmark pages and then it got to be too many. One nice thing is that there is tons of variety here (Mediterranean dishes, Italian, Indian, Chinese, Mexican, lots of different sauces, etc.). Also, the role of the onion in the dishes varies, so the onion is not necessarily the main player in each dish. It's really an extremely versatile book. I started with the Bistec Palomillo, a cuban steak marinated in lime and onions and paired with black beans. It was super easy to make, clear instructions, came out perfect. Kate Winslow's writing is warm, engaging and clear, and I can see already that I will be learning a lot as I make my way through it. Lots of tips for making everything come out just right. Finally, this book would make a great present and feature on your coffee table. BUY THIS BOOK! You will be thrilled.
