Adria Shimada brings to Parfait the same integrity and attention to detail
that one would find at a traditional French patisserie. Her original
recipes and painstaking methods result in more elegant and delicious
versions of the ice cream flavors of our childhood. Parfait remains
Seattle’s only from-scratch, organic ice cream maker and the original
artisan ice cream truck in the entire Pacific Northwest.
More interested in artistry than industry, Parfait does not use a
factory-made “mix” to create their ice cream. Adria Shimada and her small
team hand craft every small batch of their custard base from scratch in
the Parfait kitchen using only four (100% organic) ingredients: milk,
cream, sugar and eggs. It’s pure and simple, the way ice cream should be.
Parfait doesn’t use extracts and oils to flavor their ice cream. The
taste is derived from only real foods like organic spearmint leaves from
Full Circle Farms, organic blackberries from Hayton Farms, and organic
apricots from Billy’s Garden. Parfait sources its dairy, eggs, and
produce from local, certified organic farms, most of which are situated
within 150 miles of Seattle. All of Parfait’s disposable cups, spoons,
and napkins are compostable, and they have a green freezer system on their
signature brown and orange truck that requires no generator. Parfait’s
handmade, organic (NO corn syrup) sauces are sold in beautiful glass jars
that can be reused or recycled.
