SemiFreddo is here! With chocolate invented in Renaissance & mystery mousse!

The first of many recipes mastered by Carlotta in Milan!

SEMIFREDDO IS HERE! A mystery mousse lining its middle and overflowing with Gianduiotta (also Gianduiotto) — Italy’s famous chocolate invented during the Renaissance, and sitting on an Italian sponge cake. This is the first of many gelato recipes brought back by Carlotta from her recent visit to the Gelato Kitchens of Tuscany. The royal Medici family loved this semifreddo torta. You will too! So what’s keeping you? FYI, also check out Gianduiotto and Monsieur Napoleon. An interesting tale of blockades and invention.
