A vegetable terrine is a truly spectacular dish–colorful, and very theatrical, and yet very orderly. It reminds you of the gardens at Versailles, in which natural objects are made to look highly unnatural, all in the service of Art. A picture of a vegetable terrine enchanted James Peterson years ago, and inspired him to create his own versions. These terrines are light, delicious, and versatile, since almost any vegetable works in a terrine. Because they must be made in advance of serving, and because of their “wow factor,” vegetable terrines are a perfect do-ahead course. Featured recipe: Vegetable & Tomato Mousse Terrine.
