A verrine of blackberry and lemon curd makes a beautiful dessert which is easy to prepare (approx. 15 minutes) and will delight your guests at dessert time!
In France, verrines are very fashionable. Savoury or sweet, their interesting and sometimes original colours delight your guests. They are beautiful to look at and delicious to savour!
For canapes use shot or espresso glasses, for a bigger dessert try using a wine glass or an originally shaped water glass… you can even use jam jars!
As there are no limits to the mixture of flavours and colours, everything is possible… create and invent!
