Cooking with Verjuice by Maggie Beer
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Verjuice, the juice of unripe grapes, was once a staple of French provincial cooking. It lends a gentle acidity to food and is lemony but not harsh on the palate, fresh but not too tart. Its balance of acidity and sweetness make it a marvellous ingredient, particularly in sauces and dressings. Verjuice is extraordinarily versatile: you can also use it to reconstitute dried fruit or blanch vine leaves for stuffing, or reduce it to make sweet syrups to serve with desserts. Maggie Beer is renowned for her love of regional produce and for championing traditional methods. After working for years to perfect her verjuice, she now sells it commercially, and her interest in the product has encouraged other grapegrowers to produce their own versions. In "Cooking with Verjuice", Maggie reveals all you need to know about verjuice and offers many tips and recipes from her own collection and from friends and colleagues, among them Stephanie Alexander, Stefano de Pieri, George Biron and Philip Johnson.
