Wordsmith.org Forums General Topics Miscellany Do you "know your onions"?
OP "Knows their onions" is a phrase I've not heard for some time; perhaps it's a little old fashioned these days.
Is it used much outside the UK?
I personally have never heard of it, but,

Recognize it, but never particularly associated it with any location in particular...
I hadn't heard this idiom before, but had a nice time exploring it. Thank you. A bit paradoxical as I wonder how to know thyself with a beginners mind. Ogres have layers. Does it have anything to do with
