A Verrine is an appetizer or dessert that consists of a number of components layered artfully in a small glass. The word Verrine ( pronounced vair-EEN ) refers to the French word for glass "verre". Savory or sweet, cold or warm, sophisticated or casual, Verrines can find their way in any kind of parties. Intriguingly composed, they're chemistry between textures, flavors, colors and temperatures. A beautiful glass might be filled with layers of crabmeat, avocado and pink grapefruit, another will have chocolate, raspberries and a cinnamon flavored crumble.
