How Is Making a Parfait Difficult?

Although they look quite plain, parfaits are actually really tricky to prepare. While they share many features with ice creams, they are much more delicate: these frozen mixes made with cream with whipped cream, Italian meringue or paté à bombe, also contain sugar, its most important ingredient, which determines the freezing point of the water contained in the mix.

Since making a parfait implies several consecutive processes with remarkable temperature leaps, not only is it hard to find the correct balance of ingredients, but also to use them at the right temperature so to keep the mix stable. Something you also need to consider is the temperature of the lab you work in, which should be ideally between +12°C and +18°C.

Why Use A Powder Mix For Parfaits
