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.
