Definition of Verrine

Definition: Verrine

Not to be confused with terrine, a verrine ("ver-een") is an appetizer or dessert made of components layered in a small glass. The word, which translates to "protective glass" in French, refers to a trend that began in France a decade ago that has spread to the United States and other corners of the culinary world.

Les verrines, as French chefs call them, are served in a very small transparent glass or bowl that highlights layers of color and texture. Ingredient layers can be sweet or savory, hot or cold, raw or cooked, custardy or whipped, creamy or liquidy — just about anything with contrast to create an element of surprise for the diner. Have you ever tried a verrine?
