In Season: Shallots

In Season: Shallots

What it is: A member of the onion family, but one that grows somewhat like garlic with individual “cloves” that are thin and papery. They’re smaller and more elongated than onions, with a milder flavor. Some consider the taste somewhere between garlic and onion. Like an onion, cutting shallots might irritate the eyes and result in a few tears.

Wine Finds: Off-dry whites are good utility player for holidays

When purchasing wine for holiday entertaining, it’s good to keep in mind that guests have different palates. While many prefer dry wines, others would really appreciate something sweeter. Because of that, consider including fruity and off-dry crisp whites in your selection. Many of these wines can be quite versatile. Some make for elegant aperitif wines or as a pair with spicy dishes. They even go well with fruit. At Thanksgiving time, they are particularly good with sweet and tangy side dishes like cranberry sauce or sweet potato casseroles.
