"If you've always been a bit disappointed by icy semifreddo and other machine-free frozen desserts, I feel your pain. But trust me - even after sitting in the freezer for 24 hours, this baby is creamy, soft, and seriously good - not an icicle in sight. Delicious as a dessert or on its own, it would also be brilliant in all those places that ice cream works so well. Yum. The only thing is that it is quite strongly honey-flavored, which is great in most cases, but could be a little overpowering as an accompaniment to something like passionfruit souffle." -Jules Clancy

"There is a Tuscan saying: Non si tira niente - nothing gets thrown away - that is particularly appropriate vis-a-vis this soup. Carrot tops are almost always discarded. But why? They have the same sweet-earthy taste but with a hint of green that makes them perfect for soups or vegetable sautes. Try the following recipe and let it spur your creativity as to how else to use the delicate frilly leaves." -chef2chef
