National Parfait Day

National Parfait Day

Parfait is a French word that means “perfect” and American English almost exclusively means a type of delicious, frozen dessert. You’ll understand the connection between the name and parfait if ice cream is your idea of perfection. Why not dedicate a day to creamy, delicious indulgences? Why not have a day where you can indulge in rich, delicious food and feel good about it instead of feeling guilty?

Although the original parfait dates back to 1894 itself, it is not likely that the holiday honoring these frozen delights could be traced back to their beginnings. We are not sure where National Parfait Day originated. Instead of worrying about it, we recommend that you just enjoy a parfait. You would think that if we couldn’t find the history, you would be able.

Making or eating a parfait is the best way to celebrate National Parfait Day. A parfait party can be hosted (which is easier with the help of our French parfait recipe), you can work in an ice cream shop (if your interest lies more in making and eating parfaits than in baking them), or you can just buy a parfait at a place that sells them so you can enjoy the indulgence without having to make it yourself. Parfaits are the only way to celebrate National Parfait Day. You can’t go wrong with that!

A parfait in France is a frozen dessert that’s made with simple syrup, eggs, cream and sugar. Parfaits are low in alcohol, fat, and sugar so they can be made quickly without the need to stir ice cream. Parfaits can also be found in other countries, such as the USA, Canada, Japan and the United States. They are made with parfait cream, icecream, and sometimes flavored gels. These parfaits are usually served in clear glasses and topped with fresh or canned fruit and whipped cream.

There are also variations with cookies and chocolate. It is no surprise that the cookies n cream theme has been given many delicious variations. A variant that combines yogurt and granola with nuts or fresh fruit is also available. This is a North American specialty. Parfait can also refer to a fine meat paste, such as the French pate. It is usually made from liver and then flavored using liqueurs. Parfaits, according to the British, are something completely different. This shows that not all dishes have the same names.

It would be a shame to let National Parfait Day pass without enjoying a parfait. And since you might be more familiar with American parfaits than the French, let’s try something new. This is the recipe for the French coffee-flavored French parfait. This recipe is perfect for National Parfait Day. Ingredients: 1/2 cup sugar, 4 eggs (room temperature), 1 cup whipping cream (must not be very cold), 1 teaspoon coffee extract (or use instant coffee or espresso) 1 tablespoon vanilla sugar* 4 cups ground praline**

1. Simple syrup is made by combining the sugar and two tablespoons water in a saucepan. Let it boil for 2 minutes. 2. Mix the eggs in a bowl. Continue beating the mixture with a steady stream of simple syrup. Continue beating the mixture until it has cooled to a very thick consistency (about 10 minutes). 3. The cream should be whipped until it forms soft peaks. Continue whipping the cream until it is firm. 4. Fold in the whipped cream and then fold in the ground peanuts. Continue folding until you have everything folded. 5. Place the mixture in parfait glasses. This recipe will make enough for six. Cover and freeze for at most four hours. 6. Enjoy parfaits to celebrate National Parfait Day Invite your friends to share the fun, or just keep them for yourself. You have the option to choose.

*Vanilla is a common ingredient in French desserts. This is vanilla-flavoured sugar. You can substitute vanilla extract for it or make your own. Split a vanilla bean multiple times, then place it in an airtight container with 4 cups sugar. It should be kept in a dark, cool place for several weeks. You now have vanilla-infused sugar. ** Praline, a popular dessert ingredient, is made from candied hazelnuts and hazelnuts. It’s a finely ground powder that can be used to make praline. 3/4 cup blanched almonds and 3/4 cup hazelnuts are required. 1/4 cup water is also needed. Bake the nuts for 10 minutes, or until they are toasted. Next, make a caramel by whisking the sugar and water together until the mixture turns a light caramel color. The caramel should be taken off the heat. Stir in the nuts and then let cool on a baking sheet. Once the caramel has cooled, take out the pieces and chop them. Now you have ground praline.
