Jose Mier's Semifreddo Recipe

Jose Mier here with another frozen delicacy that’s not that well known. At least I don’t see it too often on menus, but it’s still a delicious treat.

Semifreddo is an Italian treat like no else in the world. It is similar to ice cream, but has some important differences to consider. Ice cream is just milk and sugar in its basic ingredients. But semifreddo will add egg yolks to provide a thicker consistency. The mousse like texture is often appreciated by all who try it for themselves. It provides a distinctive taste and adds nicely to the Italian dessert list. The semifreddo is a popular dish for families after the main course. The dessert can be customized and even made right at home. People are trying their hand at making semifreddo in their own home.
