The Secret To Perfect Dishes
Cooking with verjus
“I can’t count the number of times I’ve been asked, “Just what is this Verjuice you seem to love so much?” Verjuice, literally meaning ‘green juice’ is the juice of unripe grapes. In cooking terms, it’s what’s known as an acidulant, which gives a sour flavour to foods. Good food always has a balance of flavours on the palate and whether we consciously think about it or not, an acidulant is necessary to give a ‘brightness’ to food. Indeed without it, flavours can be flat.
I can hardly believe it was over 30 years ago that serendipity provided us with a glut of riesling grapes we couldn’t sell, at the very same time my knowledge of this thing called Verjuice had been piqued. From such humble beginnings, I never dreamt of the huge journey it would take me on. I’m told that I’m the first in the world to make Verjuice on a commercial scale.” – Maggie
For recipe ideas for how to use verjuice, Maggie’s Verjuice Cookbook is full of suggestions and tips from Maggie that will transform your cooking.
Add flavour to every meal
The perfect dish starts with the right ingredients. Maggie Beer’s versatile and aromatic extra virgin olive oil is the perfect starting point for cooking beautifully flavoured meals. Discover ways to improve your cooking with premium oils and vinegars like the best chefs use to complement every dish.
Enjoy the perfect flavoured vinaigrette for a healthy salad dressing that will impress at a dinner party. Discover a new favourite from the range of Maggie Beer salad dressings with tangy, sweet, and delicately spiced vinaigrettes that will enhance any meal. Or choose a cooking essentials gift pack with a bottle of each of Maggie’s preferred flavoured vinaigrettes, the best cooking oils, red wine vinegar, and verjuice any home chef will love.
Delight a foodie with a selection of premium vino cotto to add that wow factor to salads, desserts, sauces, and mains. Made from unfermented grape must, the highly aromatic, distinctive flavour of vino cotto is just as delicious in a sweet dish as it is added to savoury recipes.
Frequently asked questions
Where we can, we’ve done our best to give you both gram weight and cup measurements to make Maggie’s recipes easier to cook according to what makes sense in your kitchen.
Unless specified otherwise, all of Maggie’s recipes are based on fan-forced oven temperatures. If using a conventional (that is non-fan-forced) oven you may need to increase the temperature by 10 or 20ºC (50 or 68ºF). Fan-assisted ovens differ from fan-forced ovens in that use of the fan is optional, making them more flexible.

Express Delivery is $19.95 for unlimited pantry items and $19.95 per hamper.
Standard Delivery takes approximately 3-8 Business Days – please consider this when placing your order.
Once your order has been dispatched, you’ll be emailed a link for Comprehensive Track & Trace.
We dispatch our orders with Australia Post with current metro delivery times at 3-6 business days. During COVID-19, delays are frequent, we please ask for your patience and understanding. We aim to dispatch orders within 2 business days of the time of purchase or the earliest possible convenience.
Deliveries sent through Australia Post will now default to ‘Signature on Delivery with Authority to Leave’ which means the receiver will still sign for a parcel whenever they are home. If the receiver is not home and Australia Post determines there is a safe place for the parcel to be left on the premises, they will leave it there. Australia Post will also take a photo of the parcel as proof that it was delivered safely and give the receiver access to this. If there’s no safe place, Australia Post will leave a notification to the receiver and take the parcel to a nearby Post office for the receiver to pick up and sign for.
Refunds or returns will not be given for late delivery outside our delivery guarantees or predicted delivery times with Australia Post.

In general, the products you buy online will have a shelf life of least 3 months when stored properly.
Sometimes we reduce prices on products that have a shorter best-before date than usual. You’ll see these are marked with a calendar icon and a reminder: these need to be enjoyed sooner rather than later.
We deliver Australia-wide. A special note for Maggie fans outside of Australia – unfortunately due to varying customs laws we cannot offer Maggie’s products for international delivery. You can of course send a package to an Australian address if you are living outside of Australia and we will simply email the receipt to you once you have ordered.
We authorize a payment on your credit card when you place your order, and then confirm payment when your order is packed ready to send to you. This may be the same day you place your order, or a few days afterwards, depending on our packing roster.
