November 25 is National Parfait Day

Posted on November 25, 2014

Here are today’s five thing to know about Parfait:

  1. Parfait is a French word that means perfect.
  2. It is often served in a tall, clear glass and topping creation with whipped cream and fruit.
  3. The oldest recipe with the name parfait comes from a French cookbook dated 1869. It was a frozen coffee-flavoured French ice dessert constructed in parfait-shaped (tall and thin) ice cream moulds.
  4. French style parfait is served on decorated plates instead of tall, thin glassware.
  5. The unique texture of parfait is because the fat, sugar, and air interfere with the formation of water crystals, which would otherwise cause an oily texture in your mouth.

Parfait

Posted on May 3, 2010

The French term for parfait can refer to a frozen syrup made of sugar syrup, egg, and cream. An American parfait is a dessert normally made by layering cream, ice cream, or flavored gelatin dessert with other ingredients such as granola, nuts, yogurt, syrups, liqueurs, fresh fruit, or whipped topping. A parfait is normally made in a tall clear glass making all layers visible. The term parfait traditionally refers to an ice-cream treat similar to a sundae. Currently, the term ‘yogurt parfait’ is being popularized by specialty retailers in America, being a layered concoction of fruit, yogurt and granola or other cereal. It is eaten for breakfast or as a snack.
