Ah! So many to choose from! This was really tricky as there are ingredients I use ALL the time but are not necessarily my faves…then having to pick just one! I felt like I should pick something grown up and sophisticated or a really cheffy thing that would make you nod silently and think, ‘Ooh – she’s knows her stuff!’
However, I have gone for something very ordinary, but something I find irresistible.
Yes, the humble onion, in variant forms, is an ingredient I can’t help loving. Spring onions, shallots, red onions, white onions, caramelised onions, French onion soup, chives, leeks (I count those too!)….I just can’t help myself. It is one of those things that draws me to a dish on a menu, makes me feel hungry and I use all the time. My fridge is never without a jar of caramelised onion chutney and a few shallots rattling around the bottom. I got very excited the other day when my local farm shop had plaits of shallots hanging up for purchase. What every kitchen needs! Yes, I know my onions and I crown them my favourite ingredient!
