Italian Torrone Semifreddo is a dessert that I remember on my mom’s table since I was a baby. Italian nougats nuggets and chocolate chunks enrich this tasty and creamy vanilla semifreddo. My suggestion for this recipe is hard Torrone. If you prefer the soft Torrone, the result will be less crunchy, but delicious as well. This recipe is perfect for any gathering with family and friends!
Today I’d like to propose a family dessert. A crunchy lemon flavored semifreddo prepared by my mother, who in turn received the recipe from a dear friend (thanks Anna for having started all of this!). I enjoy these stories because at each step something is modified, and in the end, the recipe takes on a life of its own. You can serve it as a “tile” directly from the loaf pan, or measure doses with an ice cream spoon, adding additional crumbled meringues at the end.
Meringues are the foundation of many desserts (at my house in Bologna, we call them “spumini”). They are excellent when crumbled for stuffing ice cream cakes or whole, used as a decoration. They are also delicious eaten alone, perhaps covered with melted chocolate or flavored with coffee. They are simple to prepare, but you must arm yourself with patience and be sure to perform some fundamental steps: let’s see the recipe together!
