So, what is challis?

Challis is a type of wild onion that grows in the mountains of North America. Also known as Allium bisceptrum, this versatile ingredient is highly prized by chefs for its pungent flavor and unique texture. The bulb of the challis is small and elongated, with a white or light green color, while the leaves are long and slender with a slightly blue-green hue. Challis can be used in a variety of dishes, including soups, stews, salads, and marinades. Its distinct flavor profile adds depth and complexity to any recipe, making it a must-have ingredient for any adventurous home cook or professional chef.
