While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
A parfait way to begin May, May 1 is National Chocolate Parfait Day!
Depending on how you parfait, you can spend this perfect day celebrating one or two wonderful ways. Because parfait literally means "perfect" in French, you'll be sure to enjoy this dessert in at least one of its forms.
In 1894, parfait began to describe a frozen French dessert made with sugar syrup, eggs and cream. When the dessert migrated to the U.S., we naturally had to put our own spin on things.
