Le Gruyère AOP & Bell Pepper Verrine

60' 5'

The term verrine is very modern in gastronomy. In fact, the first mention of it can be found in 1994!

It was during this period, for example, that the magnificence of the presentation and appearance of the dishes offered was exacerbated.

Many food lovers took advantage of the transparency of glass and the volume possible with the verrine to propose combinations of superimposed colours, thus offering a presentation that was certainly airy, and colourful!

On this subject, did you know that in the cooking world, colours have a considerable importance?

I believe that there are four of them: Green, white, red and a dark colour.

This is a strange observation considering the quality of Italian cuisine!

Another important observation is the contradictions in the textures. So I recommend that you offer crispy textures with one that is more...Fluffy.

However, I have to admit...I realised in Cambodia that these meditations on transcendental gastronomy are different in every culture...

Isn't that right Dear Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin?
