Verrines

     Posted by Lori on December 14, 2010

“‘Verrine’ comes from verre, the French word for glass. Elegantly presented in a glass, verrines make impressive appetizers and dazzling desserts. They are a sensory adventure, with layered ingredients creating visual interest, beautiful textures, vivid colors, and tantalizing flavors.”

One of the *hot* items this year - I think they are the coolest ever - I haven’t used mine yet, but very soon I am going to break them in.  Tonight, I was doing some searching for recipes and ideas.  Most of the recipes I found are in French, so I am going to have to find myself a translator, but oh my, I did find some pretty awesome photos.

I have tapered ones and I have ordered oval ones - and now I can’t wait to try them out.  And, oh wow, just before I was going to sign off, I found this next picture ….. it’s not in a verrine, but you could make a mini version of this in a verrine.  YUMMO!  (click picture to take you to recipe)

Peanut Butter Torte

Do you have any?  If so, what style do you have, and what recipes have you tried?

If you don’t have any, is this something that you would like to do?

    i have the Epicure oval ones… and I think they would be great for layering a ceviche in, and topping it with a shrimp, or a raw oyster! But I keep thinking of a sushi or sashimi-in-a-glass idea, too…
