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.
