Essential to all major cuisines, the humble onion finally gets some respect in this book, playing a rold in more than two hundred recipes featuring not only onions but their close relatives: leeks, scallions, chives, shallots, and garlic.

Fred Griffith is the host of The Morning Exchange, the number-one morning television program in Cleaveland, carried on the ABC affliate and seen in 100,000 homes daily. He lives with his wife, Linda, in Cleaveland, Ohio.
Linda Griffith, a food and wine writer, makes regular TV and radio appearances, and her articles appear in such magazines as Food Wine. She lives in Cleveland, Ohio.From Publishers Weekly:
"Onward and upward with onions" could be the rallying cry of the Griffiths (The Best of the Midwest), whose two previous cookbooks celebrated foods from the farmlands of the U.S. Thanks in part to a near-obsessive recounting of anecdotes, the authors bring a world of onions to the reader. Fortunately, only one dessert is listed among the more than 210 recipes that make up the enormous work: an award-winning chocolate coconut pecan surprise cake baked with super-sweet Walla Walla onions. A many-layered history of onions is enlivened by the advice of popular professional chefs on how to avoid tears when cutting "smokers"-those searingly hot onions whose juices sting the eyes (use a very sharp knife, or wear scuba goggles). A crew of celebrity chefs contributed recipes. The text is presented with much good humor ("never have so many tears been shed over a project that was this much fun"), though the jocularity can sometimes make a reader wince (under the "Onion Power" heading: "Impotent? Try red pepper, beer, onions and whiskey. Enough of the whiskey and you won't care").
