goodbye/fun facts....National Parfait Day is on November 25 every year...Parfait, meaning “perfect” in English, is a dessert of French origin consisting of cream, egg, sugar, and syrup.  These basic ingredients are boiled together to create a custard-like puree. This is different from the American parfait, which contains granola, nuts, yogurt, and liqueurs, with fruits or whipped cream toppings. Parfait is usually served in tall clear glassware, with a long spoon called a ‘parfait spoon.’  In the Middle Ages, sugar was a rare product in Europe and was only enjoyed by the rich and the aristocrats...but the industrial revolution transformed dessert from a meal for the elite to something easily accessible to the masses.  While some parfaits contain a high sugar that may be unhealthy, the parfait recipe is flexible enough to allow healthy iterations....especially if you're trying to eat a bit healthier after yesterday's huge feast!
