'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.' Maggie Beer
is one of Australia's best-known food personalities. As well as writing books, she devotes her time to her export kitchen in the Barossa Valley, which produces a wide range of pantry items for domestic and international markets. These include her famous pate, verjuice, quince paste and an ice-cream range. Maggie is the author of Maggie's Farm, Maggie's Orchard, Cooking with Verjuice, Maggie's Table, Maggie's Harvest and Maggie's Kitchen, and co-author of the bestselling Stephanie Alexander & Maggie Beer
