I am fascinated by, and thoroughly enjoying, this newest trend in food production. I mean, sure, we've had baby carrots and two-bite brownies around for probably a decade or longer by now, but it seems every time I go to the grocery store lately I'm seeing a new "mini" calling out to me. Mini cans of coke, mini tubs of Ben and Jerry's ice cream, baby watermelons, mini pita rounds and bagels, baby bell peppers, and the list goes on (seriously--add to my list by commenting below, I'm really curious to know what's all out there!).
I'm also thrilled that Epicure Selections has joined in this trend with our "verrines"--miniature glass dishes for serving layered appetizers or desserts. I've been having so much fun with these--breakfast fruit and yogurt parfaits, perfectly portioned chips and dip, almost calorie-less desserts. They really are so fun, and we're eating less because of it.
Hmmm, what will be next--miniature eggs?? Now THAT would be interesting...look out, Robins!
Here are some pictures of the verrines we've been enjoying!
