National Strawberry Parfait Day

National Strawberry Parfait Day is a holiday that falls on June 25th every year and arrives just in time to coincide with the strawberry harvest in many parts of the U.S. It’s a great day to enjoy a strawberry parfait—a dessert that comes in two different forms: the traditional French parfait and the American parfait. Just make sure that you garnish your creation with some fresh, sliced strawberries. After all, they’re available. Enjoy the type that you prefer, and let’s all raise a cup or glass to the strawberry parfait, a dish that’s the perfect accompaniment for any and all summer plans.
