"Banish (the onion) from the kitchen and the pleasure flies with it. Its presence lends color and enchantment to the most modest dish; its absence reduces the rarest delicacy to hopeless insipidity, and dinner to despair."

"Just as there is no pub with no beer, there is no kitchen without onions..."

"Where would cooks be without onions?" - Delia Smith
