How to prepare the pistachio parfait recipe:

  1. First, pour the cream into a container and whip it with an electric whisk. Only at the end, and always with the whips in action, add the pistachio cream.
  2. Separately, divide the egg whites from the yolks and whip the first with 100 g of sugar taken from the total until you get a sort of meringue. Also whip the egg yolks with the remaining sugar until they are light and fluffy.
  3. Now all that remains is to combine the three compounds , pouring everything into the bowl of egg yolks and stirring gently from the bottom up. With the same movement add the chopped pistachios.
  4. Pour everything into a loaf pan lined with cling film or parchment paper and put it in the freezer overnight (or for at least 4 hours) until it is firm. Serve your spoon dessert cut into slices.
