Shallots are small, golden-brown members of the onion family. They have a finer flavour than most other onions and the main bulb may be made up of several smaller ones. Pink shallots have a stronger flavour than brown shallots and are popular in French cuisine. Grey shallots are similar to pink shallots but have a very fine, strong flavour, so can be eaten raw as well as in cooked dishes.
