November 25 is National Parfait Day
Here are today’s five thing to know about Parfait:
- Parfait is a French word that means perfect.
- It is often served in a tall, clear glass and topping creation with whipped cream and fruit.
- 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.
- French style parfait is served on decorated plates instead of tall, thin glassware.
- 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.
