The raspberry, avocado mousse and pistachio verrines recipe, a water photo and thanks Mr Conticini!
What exactly is a verrine? Well, the idea is to display dishes that would normally be served on plates, in vertical and transparent containers. Like layers of trifle in a glass (verre in French). I’ve been eyeing these multilayered colourful desserts and growing ‘curioser and […]
