Semifreddo is without a doubt my new favourite thing. It delivers an incredibly delicious ice cream and has to be the easiest way of making ice cream when you do not have an ice cream maker.
Cape Town city centre is dotted with fruit sellers selling an array of fruit and vegetables during the week. I enjoy seeing the seasons change in their wares. Strawberries have started to appear and I saw the first batch of guavas just this week. I can not wait for the summer glut of grapes and stone fruit on its way.
I was walking down St Georges Mall a while back and could smell the sweet tropical fragrance granadillas. I immediately got some and knew that I wanted to make some sort of ice cream with it. I thought that chocolate would be a perfect accompaniment for the granadilla and this is how this recipe for Granadilla Semifreddo with Frozen Dark Chocolate Sauce came about.
