So beautiful! I love parfaits (as I don't have an ice cream maker, anything that doesn't need churning is in my good-books) and I am always surprised and a little disappointed when I see something called a parfait and it turns out to be an American style one (particularly when it is basically yoghurt and muesli).


Roasting the strawberries brings such a wonderful depth of flavor.

Interesting. You know, I've never tried (or even thought of) roasting strawberries. I suppose roasting intensifies the flavors as it does for other foods? Will try it soon!

Simona Carini

Hi Alicia. Parfaits are indeed perfect if one doesn't have an ice cream maker. And yes, in the US the word has been used to name desserts that have little resemblance to the original one.

Indeed, Val. And once you start doing it, it's hard to stop.

It does, Frank, and it makes strawberries much more useful in dishes where you want their bright flavor.


Looks delicious, Simona!
Thanks for sharing


Simona Carini

Glad you like it, Dan :)


What a wonderful version of berries and cream. And no ice cream maker needed. I love it!

Simona Carini

Indeed, Katie. Also, no stirring while the cream is in the freezer. I am sure I will try other versions of this dessert soon.


Il raccolto è pubblicato! :)

Simona Carini

Grazie, Lucia.
