I've begun trying out the recipes in Gina Von Esmarch's cookbook, Taste This! Gina comes from the family who runs Alioto's #8 in San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf (the one with the gigantic crab sign) so you know she knows her s*&t. I wanted to try her Red Onions & Red Grapes recipe from the moment I saw it, and it didn't disappoint. Even though the mixture spent a wee too much time in the oven (note the slightly burnt edges of the onions), it was deeevine. The Pea, who supposedly hates onions, loved it: "Mama, the onions taste like grapes!". Well, not exactly, but the combination of the two flavors complements the goat cheese and sesame crackers perfectly.
