SERVICE & PAIRING
Verjusis much appreciated by many chefs as a milder alternative to lemon juice and vinegar. Verjus and wine are perfect for serving together as they have the same tartaric acid base. Add it as a gentle acidulant whenever you want just a biteof flavour. Verjus can be used all by itself as a salad dressing, or to heighten the flavours of soups and sauces. It makes an excellent marinade, and may be used for cooking or deglazing, or even to add a special zing to cocktails and desserts.
The unripe grapes are pressed and the juice is kept cool for up to three weeks to allow natural sedimentation to occur; then it is filtered and gently pasteurised before bottling.
