Today I will tell you about the parfait. We cooked it together with Anya and Vika from confectionery Make My Cake. They told me all the secrets and mysteries of this ancient, tender and of course, delicious dessert.


Parfait from the French parfait means beautiful and immaculate. I think these two words is the best describe of this dessert. That dish of French cuisine, famous to the world since 1894.

Classic parfait is a cream, whipped with sugar and vanilla, and then frozen. Sometimes you can add the beaten eggs.

There are a variety of American parfait, they add ice-cream and other ingredients.

As a supplement usually can be used coffee, cocoa, fruits, juices, and all that you will skillfully add.

Today we have a pistachio parfait. So if you, too, love to eat so gentle, air and just makes your head spin dessert, a plan of action below.
