re: I have never cooked with shallots before... (Posted on 3/6/14 at 7:30 pm to rondo)
I don't know either, so I'll be intersted in answers. To me a shallot is kinda like an onion/ garlic mix. They aren't as strong as an onion. I've used them when recipes called for them, but don't really know why I couldn't have used a yellow onion. I'm no chef though.
