~ Zibelemärit, Bern, Switzerland, 27th Of November 2006 ~

On the occasion of the Bernese "Zibelemärit" (see link 1 & link 2) which takes place every year on the 4th Monday of November, Zorra of "Kochtopf" invited us all to prepare a dish with onions and to share it with us all via her blog (see infos) and yours...

Unfortunately, I didn't have enough time to prepare anything new, but I thought that you'd still be interested in the followin
g recipes that I had previously posted.

Those dishes are all perfect for the coming winter season as they'll bring you the warmth and co
mfort that you need when it's dark and cold outside!

My onion recipes:

I hope that you'll enjoy them as much as I do!

“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.”

~ Elizabeth Robbins Pennell, American columnist ~

  1. That quiche sounds amazing! I bet the apples really spice up the flavor.

  2. haha, rosa ... did you know we joke that all jewish recipes start with the words, "cut and fry an onion"!?!

    it's ok. i LOVE onions. thanks for the links and recipes!

  3. I agree with Elizabeth Robbins Pennel! I wish I could see this onion market, this is so original, and I am sure it's beautiful!

  4. I like onions too! :-) And I love your kitchen! It's well lit, clean and very organized. :-)

  5. Rosa, thank you for sharing with us your favorite onion-recipes!

  6. ARI: Thanks for the kind comment and for passing by! Yes, this quiche is awesome. Apples and onions really spice up the flavor and add an interesting contrast...

    BUREKABOY: Not bad ;-))!!! Well, I love onions (and garlic), so, nearly non of my savory recipes start without the "cut and fry an onion" sentence, LOL. I'm glad you liked the recipes...

    CONFITUREMAISON: Well, I also would love to see this market, but believe it or not, I've never saw it! This year, there were about 650 stalls, so you can imagine how interesting it must be...

    ANONYM: Thanks for your visit and for leaving a comment. Great to hear that there is another onion fan around! I'm happy to hear that you like my kitchen. Clean and organized?!? Well, it pleases me to hear that...

    ZORRA: No problem ;-P...

  7. Hi Rosa, nice onion recipes!
    I found myself in the same situation. As I was away last week, then I didn't have a chance to cook anything new and posted few of my previous onion recipes:)

  8. PILLE: Thanks, Pille! Well, I guess that it doesn't really matter, because in this way we can present old recipes which might have got forgotten or never browsed before...
