Hey everone - I'm Rob from Marietta, GA - found this site researching alternatives to Onions in cooking as I've been allergic/intolerant since I was about 18. I love the smell and taste, but it resembles a sver case of food poisoning when I eat them (even Onion Powder can set me off).
If anyone likes to play Sherlock Holmes - I can eat Garlic (thank god), shallots, leeks, and sometime spring onion. I no longer can eat Spinach, green/red peppers, or any tough leafy greens.
Totally sucks, but this is what got me me cooking in the first place...I got tired of not being able to eat the food I like because of onions...so 15 years later I do 100% of the shopping and cooking and am taking Sunday, all day cookathon sessions at my place once a month with local chefs and sous chefs...great to be here - looks like an amazing resource!
