Maggie Beer Cookbook Giveaway – Maggies Verjuice Cookbook



Everyone who is interested in cooking knows who the gorgeous Maggie Beer is. Most people who cook know what Verjuice is and use it i their cooking.
Maggie was the first in the world to produce Verjuice commercially. Made from the juice of unfermented grapes, use it as a gentle acidulant wherever you might find lemon juice or vinegar too tart – which means whenever you want the gentlest bite of flavour.

I love to use it when making Risotto with chicken & mushrooms.( Recipe below )  I also use it to glaze my pan fried scallops .

If you have always wanted to try verjuice but had no idea what you would do with it or if you have a bottle of Verjuice that has sat in the back of your pantry then this is the book for you.


‘I just can’t help myself when it comes to verjuice! I use it in place of lemon juice or vinegar to bring the gentlest lift of flavour to everything – from grilled vegetables, meat or fish, pastas, risottos, salads and hearty one-pot dishes to delicate custards, old-fashioned puddings and decadent tarts. I can’t imagine cooking without it.’

  1. I think if I won Maggie’s Verjuice Cookbook I would have to make the Rhubarb and Apple Crumble first…mmmmmmm. great competition ThermoBlitz, thank you 😀


  2. I have used Maggie’s verjuice for years to add a little something to all sorts of food. Could really do with some recipes though as I have only ever added on instinct!


  3. I’ve never tried verjuice, but my mum loves it. I haven’t seen her since March and will be visiting her at Christmas finally after a tough year. I’d love to cook anything with her that her heart desires 😀


  4. If I could access some Pearl Meat, I would pickle the meat in verjuice and serve with a mayo made with a dash of verjuice.
    It’s more likely I’ll use verjuice in place of wine in a mushroom risotto.


  5. I do have a bottle of verjuice sitting in the cupboard actually lol, sadly it is unopened but I would make the chicken and mushroom risotto first if I won


  6. If I won Maggie’s book I’d like to try using Verjuice in her recipes but id firstly like to try it in my amazing prawn and sausage risotto I make weekly!


  7. Verjuice..the bottle i keep pushing to the back as i have nfi what to use it in! I would like to cook something lamb. Not sure what though? ! Ideas?!


  8. I have only ever used the Verjuice in my risotto so would love to win the book to discover how many other ways to use it, I will always use it especially for my asparagus and leek risotto


  9. I am thinking verjuice would add a nice touch to seafood risotto. There is also an avocado savoury jelly in a maggie cook book that I have always thought sounded interesting


  10. I would love to win a copy of this book. After reading some ideas about thd use of Verjuice, apart from Salads, i would enjoy trying recipes on the family (help us all!) ONWARDS AND UPWARDS…… Thank You

  14. I love the idea of glazing scallops! And prawns! I’d love to try that with verjuice. I’d like to try it in salads too band heaps of other things! I never realised how versatile verjuice was. I can’t wait to start experimenting!!


  15. I would spoil my family by making roasted chook with plenty of garlic and verjuice…mmmhhh just thinking about it makes my mouth water…??
    Now fingers crossed and hoping for a win…
