Directions

Onion Tart FIlling

Caramelize the onions to a dark brown color.

Over a double boiler, melt both cheeses into a smooth mixture and fold in the onion and lemon zest.

Pearl Onion Preparation

In a medium sauce pan, bring the water to a medium-high temperature and slowly whisk in the butter to form an emulsion.

Add the onions one color at a time.

Cook until tender and watch the braise; if it starts to break add some water to bring it back together.

Season with thyme and salt.

Let cool for 4 minutes.

Cippolini Onion Caramelization

In a sauté pan, add onions (whole) on medium heat.

Caramelize the onions completely, then add a splash each of sherry vinegar and water, and honey and butter as desired.

Make sure the mixture starts to coat the onions, then turn down to low heat.
