The basic recipe for this classic British pub food is incredibly simple — the filling is nothing more than cheddar, and onion. In traditional cheddar onion pie, onions are cooked without browning. But this recipe is more or less totally different from that. Instead, we’ve caramelised the onions to dark, sticky sweetness. It works well as a side dish, as part of a brunch spread, or as an appetiser. Whenever we make it, it’s always one of the most popular things on the table.

When we were first experimenting with cochinita pibil, we found a recipe including this salsa of pickled purple onion, and we loved it. The simpler recipe of blanched onions in bitter orange juice seems to be more typical in Yucatan. But vinagreta de cebolla is still our favourite. Spicy, and slightly smoky from the charred habaneros; with the aroma of allspice and oregano. It’s quintessentially Caribbean, and ideal for pulled pork. It’s so good, we find ourselves eating it by the spoonful.
