But what is a parfait?

First created by a French woman in 1894, parfait means "perfect" in French and first consisted of layers of fat, sugar and alcohol to form a gritty ice cream, certainly not your average ice cream topping choice. But, mmm... doesn't that sounds yummy!

By the time the layered treat reached the United States, people were beginning to layer cream, ice cream and fruit in a tall glass, then topping with whipped cream or liquor. This is where we start to see the foundations of the modern fruit parfait.
