Easy onion prep tips

By Craig Deppe

There is, arguably, no more ubiquitous or frustrating ingredient in all of savory cuisine than the onion. (We must not forget garlic, but that is a story for another day.)

Every cook knows that the never-ending demand for onions can bring one to tears…Yes, I said it.

We all love them but really don’t love having to deal with them.

Here are a couple of tips that can make preparing onions a little bit easier.

Craig Deppe developed his skill and passion for all things culinary at an early age, under the guidance of his French mother. After college, he spent 15 years traveling the world as a professional sailor, sampling myriad cuisines and replicating them in many a ship’s galley. The birth of his son led Craig to forgo a seagoing career to pursue his interest in cooking and writing. He now organizes and caters culinary events in San Francisco and works as a chef’s assistant at Sur la Table.
