In a 1 to 1 1/2 quart pan, combine 1/2 cup sherry and broth.
Bring to a boil and simmer, covered, about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a 10 to 12-inch frying pan, combine butter and onion.
Stir occasionally over medium heat until onion is fairly browned, 10 to 15 minutes.
Add remaining sherry; boil, uncovered, until liquid evaporates, about 2 minutes.
Reduce heat to medium and add liver, stirring often until liver is firm and slightly pink in center (cut to test), about 5 minutes.
Add anchovies and capers.
Whirl liver mixture in a food processor just until coarsely pureed, or finely chop with a knife.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Spoon warm pate onto toast.
Sprinkle with parsley.
Put on rimmed plates or wide bowls; ladle hot broth over toast and eat with a knife and fork.
