Photo Club Trip to Caltagirone - Part VI

Our Caltigirone Photo Club adventure ended at Il Palazzo dei Marchesi di Santa Barbara.  One of our club members had found a restaurant in the palazzo on a previous trip and he raved about it so we decided to try it out.  We were not disappointed!  Everything was fantastic,  and I will definitely go back again.  Many of us ended our meal with dolce and I chose a Fantasia of Semifreddo.

What is semifreddo?  According to Wikipedia it is " a class of semi-frozen desserts, typically ice-cream cakes, semi-frozen custards, and certain fruit tarts. It has the texture of frozen mousse because it is usually produced by uniting two equal parts of ice cream and whipped cream."  Sounds fantastic, right?

Well, here is what my fantasia looked like:

Pistachio

No idea what flavor this was, it had dried fruits and nuts and had a fruit sauce

Chocolate

Gone!
I think I liked it!
