Lemongrass SemifreddoA semifreddo is a partially frozen dessert that is made from all three foams (bombe base, Italian meringue, and heavy cream, plus flavor, typically added in a liquid form), which makes it incredibly light. Even though it is frozen, it gives the impression of not being completely frozen when it is eaten, hence the name. Yield 5 kg / 11 lb .36 oz base
