A semifreddo - 'half cold' - dish is perfect to serve as a surprise treat for your guests! This particular dish is ideal for a dinner party or to serve to unexpected guests as you can prepare it in advance and take out of the freezer shortly before serving.
One of my favourite ways to serve steak is this traditional French bistro method. Pepper, a seasoning that often hides in the background barely noticed, is thrust onto centre stage. Where normally we grind peppercorns into a fine powder, here they are left in larger chunks so you notice the flavour and texture as well as the heat.
