Cook’s Corner

The homemade parfait. It’s one of those rare, idealized breakfast items that you wish you made every morning: healthier than cereal, sweeter than eggs… But the homemade version always seems to be missing those extra details—a surprise layer of honey, or a sprinkling of nuts. So we reached out to Balducci’s in Scarsdale (also in Riverside, Connecticut), for a definitive answer to the “How do I make a parfait like they make it?” question.  They answered with The Healthy Breakfast Berry Parfait:
