Semifreddo nougat ice cream
( SERVES 8 )
This is a perfect ending to any meal, although it's not for the faint-hearted. I think you'll find, however, that even they will be persuaded to try it. The nougat is an expensive addition. You can, of course, add anything you like, but I love the contrast of all that softness surrounding the crunch of the nougat.
- Place the egg yolks in the bowl of an electric mixer and whisk until pale and combined. Gradually add the sugar and whisk until light and creamy.
- Add the cream, mascarpone and vanilla and whisk until thickish. Add the nougat and fold through the mixture until well combined. Pour into a container and freeze overnight.
