Shallots have a mild taste that combines the flavour of a sweet onion with a touch of garlic. They can be used in similar dishes to ones where garlic and onions are used, but have a more subtle gourmet taste than onions and tend to have a faster cooking time. Some varieties of shallots are more elongated than others, while some are more rounded.
