Where to buy a special type of onion.
Last night (23 Feb 2012) we had an excellent TV programme by Raymond Blanc - a very well known (over here) French chef with many Michelin stars to his name over many years.
The programme showed him preparing a meal for the great and the good of Alsace and it was held in Riquewihr - a place we, and I guess you, know well.
His food used completely local ingredients and to a lover of food and Alsace, it was a delight from start to finish.
One of the dishes - a baked onion tart - required, well onions!
So he went off to an onion grower who had many different varieties available.
He looked at the "onion mulhouse" but it was too strong for what he wanted so opted for a "chicken thigh" onion (cuisse poule)which is a long red type - reasonably mild and good for salads.
Have you any idea as to where I could buy some when we take our tenth visit to Barr in as many years?
All of the google searches only show "how to cook an onion tarte" - so over to you to help us please.
