Mary from One Perfect Bite has organized a group to cook and blog our way through the list of Gourmet's 50 Women Game Changers. This is week #23 - Nancy Silverton who among other projects started La Brea Bakery in 1989 and perhaps known most recently for her involvement in the restaurant group known as Mozza. Each week you choose a dish of the featured Game Changer and so I chose Balsamic Glazed Onions. I'm not sure why this dish...but anything with balsamic glaze gets my attention and with the holidays coming up...this is a great side dish that can be made ahead and served at room temperature...another plus, in my opinion for holiday meals.
I'm new to the group, so perhaps this has already been discussed and debated, but I can't help but wonder why Giada De Laurentis and Sara Moulton did not make the list?
|The ingredients are simple...Balsamic, olive oil, sea salt, very large red onion, fennel fronds and stalks, bay leaves and dried fennel. The complete recipe can be found here.|
