I am somewhat surprised that the verrine as a concept has yet to really take hold in the UK. Admittedly you can find them in high end restaurants, but they don't seem to have found their way into home cooking yet.

For the uninitiated, a verrine is a layered dish presented in a glass container, typically a single serving. They come in many guises both sweet and savoury and are a great way of creating a dish that looks spectacular with very little effort.

The French seem to be leading the way in this field and consequently the best books currently available seem to be only in French. Not much of a problem for those with a basic knowledge of the language and with access to a dictionary or the internet (to check some less obvious terms)

This is a comprehensive collection of ideas with some very tempting combinations of flavours and textures.

Some particular favourites are Honey Poached Apple with Pain D'epice (a French version of Gingerbread) and Foie Gras with Chocolate and Blood Orange.

The trick is to choose contrasting elements that layer well and tease the palette - and this book is a great introduction to a new way of presenting dishes.

Verrines are the big thing in France and a wonderful way to present food in these little clear glasses in attractive layers. There does not seem to be a book in English to be bought anywhere but it is not difficult to translate this one and the illustrations are excellent.Come on you British cooks, produce a version in English and let us all enjoy food prepared this way.
