The most perfect accompaniment to rich dishes with strong mineral flavor like pâté and liverwurst is onion marmalade, says takadi. takadi first experimented by topping bread with liverwurst, fried onions, and pear jam. “The taste was outstanding, and since jam and onions mixed so well, I wondered if there was such a miraculous concoction where they combined the two into one … onion jam,” says takadi. “Next thing I knew, I was buying and eventually making onion jam for the next month and now, if there’s something rich and mineral-y, like pâté, steak, or a nice juicy hamburger, I absolutely cannot eat it without slathering a big thing of onion marmalade on top.”
