Caramelized onion tarte tatin

Serves 4


Caramelized onion tarte tatin


  • 0,1 g saffron threads
  • 250 g risotto rice
  • 1 onion
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 100 ml white wine
  • 1.2 l chicken stock
  • Salt, pepper
  • 60 g parmesan
  • 500 g small onions (white and red)
  • 10 sprigs of thyme
  • 80 g cane sugar
  • 30 ml port wine
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 1 sheet of puff pastry (from the chilled section, approx. 300 g)


Peel the onions and cut the root ends flat. Then cut in half laterally. Pick the thyme leaves from the stems.

Caramelize half of the sugar with 1 tbsp. water in the Fusiontec stewing pan 28 cm. Douse with portwine, bring to boil and simmer whilst stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Add the onions and simmer at a mild heat for 10 minutes. Remove the pan from the stove, put the onions through a sieve and collect the juice.

Reduce the port wine juice in the Fusiontec Mineral saucepan 16 cm at a mild heat for approx. 20 minutes, uncovered, until it forms a thick syrup. Leave to cool.

Pre-heat the oven to 180 °C top/bottom heat.

Melt the butter in the Fusiontec stewing pan 28 cm, sprinkle the rest of the sugar and thyme evenly across the bottom of the pan. Place the onions inside closely together, with the cut surface facing downwards. Roll out the puff pastry and place onto the onions. Press the pastry around the edge of the pan.

Bake the tarte without the lid of the Fusiontec stewing pan on the 2nd shelf from the bottom on the grate in the pre-heated oven for approx. 45 minutes until it is golden brown. Remove, leave to cool then carefully turn it onto a plate. Drizzle with the port wine syrup and serve.

A fresh green salad and chilled white wine or rose wine go well with this dish. Stewing pan 28 cm Mineral saucepan 16 cm.
