I hadn't heard of Verrines before, but I just saw it used on Kara's Party Ideas, sharing a recipe of Red Velvet Strawberry Mousse Parfaits from Art de Fete
A verrine is an appetizer or dessert that consists of a number of components layered artfully in a small glass. (The word verrine refers to the glass itself; literally it means "protective glass.")
The word refers to the glass itself, but has since been used as the type of dessert being layered in those glasses. I have created my own verrines and didn't even know that is what they are called.
The recipe above makes me think I should try it again ..., soon!
