    In most recipes, you can use any other kind of onion (red, white, green). In North America, the word shallot is sometimes used for green onions (called échalotte in French-speaking parts Canada and Cajun parts of USA -- in such places, the real shallot is called "French Onion" or French shallot.

    It's a smaller, usually more aromatic onion. Vegetable section. Best the onions usually. If you see them though, buy echalion shallots, they're much nicer, more aromatic and flavoursome, but a bit dearer.

    It's like a green onion. Delicious and available in some stores in the produce section..

    it's related to garlic and looks like that, but more of a tan color.

    Where in the store? varies with store. Look near the garlic.
