How about a nice parfait?

This morning’s LA Times had a piece on verrines, which defines them as follows:

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.”)

I haven’t seen this trend yet in Seattle, but I guess I haven’t been looking.

But tell me: isn’t this just a savory parfait? And as Donkey says, everybody likes a nice parfait.

I can see the trend trickling down: first Whole Foods will offer sweet verrines for take-out, then McDonalds will offer some gross variation, then Taco Bell will make a Border Verrino with beef, cheese, sour cream, and bad salsa.

Hey wait, a taco parfait sounds great to me. Except the Taco Bell part.
