Working on some OR posts, had this in the wings, thought it would be good for the taste buds. What is it?

Guess the Italian desert.

    Is it Semifreddo?

    Looks like pannacotta to me.

    Looks like a big slab of LDL cholesterol to me (grin), but probably tastes pretty good….

    I don’t think there are any deserts in Italy. But there probably are a few desserts.

    I’d say semifreddo too but it almost looks hard and crispy?
    There’s ike tiny crumbles of it on the plate.
    like some kind of meringue?

    Some kind of soft cheese, ricotta?

    I think I’d better get Federico to give us the definitive answer. I’m afraid I’ll misspell it. Fede?

    I’ll never get my fingers to type the two s’s no matter how hard I try. I think it’s genetic.

    It’s an “original” interpretation of one of the Italian’s calssic, the “Meringata”.
    A pretty nice version softer than usual and served with three difference sauce, if I remember well mou, 75%chocolate and wildberries.
    Looking forward to see all the other pics of that dinner ;-)

    Thanks Fede, better you to give the details than me! That stuff was pretty good, I’ll say that!

Got something to say? Please do so.
