Shallots have been used in recipes for centuries, dating back to ancient times. The word “shallot” is thought to be derived from the French word “chaloine” or “eschalotte,” which in turn came from the Latin word “scalonia,” meaning “onion.”
Shallots were mentioned in the Old Testament, and they were also used by the ancient Egyptians and Romans. In the Middle Ages, shallots were grown in monasteries and used in medicinal preparations.
Shallots became more widely used in recipes during the Renaissance, when they were introduced to Italy from France. By the 17th century, shallots were a common ingredient in French cuisine.
