Everything you ever wanted to know about onions including their history, varieties and uses from ancient times to the present. There is a lot of cool trivia including that George Washington had an onion patch next to his house which he would dig up a couple and snack on. Also, Custer (of last stand fame) ate them all the time to the chagrin of his wife. The Romans feasted on all manner of bulbs including many flowers like Gladiolas. My issue is the overkill of recipes. How many variations on onion soups do you need to read about?… (més)

things bookbox ; The author uses the New England town of Gloucester to discussing the disappearing way of life - commercial fishing. How the town was formed, the changes over the centuries due to population & fish species available and what happened when government got involved. Very good and informative.

Interesting, but not as enjoyable as Cod, Salt and The Big Oyster. I guess reading lots of recipes doesn’t really do it for me. Seemed that onion sauce is much like creamed onions.

I am not a vegetarian, but the recipe for blood sauce disturbed me for some reason. I won’t go looking for any of that.

Enjoyed it, a lot of tying history together and the start of bigger things - taxation, money, trade etc.. Easy to drop and pick up easily. Lots of recipes.
