Cookbook Giveaway - Onions Etcetera

Onions Etcetera: The Essential Allium Cookbook: More Than 150 Recipes for Leeks, Scallions, Garlic, Shallots, Ramps, Chives and Every Sort of Onion by Kate Winslow and Guy Ambrosino is one of the best single-ingredient cookbooks I've encountered. Even though there are so many variations in the allium family as listed in the title itself, it still qualifies for that distinction as a single-ingredient. The authors have delivered a beautiful, well-rounded cookbook that shares a wide range of tempting recipes.

For more information on this title, please see our review post which shares a recipe  for Grits with Scallions and Bacon.

We are pleased to offer five copies of Onions Etcetera to our EYB Members in the US.  One of the entry options is to answer the following question in the comments section of this blog post:

What recipes are calling to you from the book's index?
