This delicious white chocolate and nougat semifreddo is a lovely summer ice-cream dessert or perfect for your Christmas table or Valentine's Day. You can prepare this a few days in advance, because it is perfectly to freeze. When planning a special occasion, you don't always want to drain yourself with all the things to do on the last day. This is once again why it is such a lovely recipe. Prepare it a few days in advance and keep going with the rest of all the tasks.

I have made this lovely recipe for a special Valentine's Day Sunday Lunch dessert while working at a beautiful venue. I remember a couple calling me out of the kitchen to their table to specially thank me for this lovely dessert. This is the reason why I have decided to share this with you. If you have a lovely rose plant in your garden - it doesn't matter which colour - keep a few of the petals nearby to garnish this lovely dessert.

It is of importance to use a good quality chocolate in this semifreddo. When working with chocolate never use a cheap type. It just makes the world of difference when using a good quality. You can taste the quality inside the semifreddo.

As for the rosewater: Personally for me add enough so that you can actually taste the hint of rosewater too. It is no use to use this as a flavour but you can't taste it. Rosewater you can find at your nearest pharmacy but I also saw it recently at a Pick a Pay store.
