A semifreddo  (Italian word meaning “semi cold”) is a dessert made of sugar, eggs, coffee and fresh cream.

Semifreddo is the name given to a family of typically Italian frozen desserts (zuccotto, viennetta, spumone, etc.). This dessert is close to an ice cream, of which it differs by the quantity and quality of the ingredients and by its sweet consistency.

We’re delighted to introduce the recipe of a mascarpone and coffee semifreddo.
