Basil and Ash Give Coconut Semifreddo a Savory Touch

Adding salt to desserts is a tried and true way to balance and enhance sweet dishes, but other elements can also get the job done. At The Populist in Denver, chef Kathryn Gillette uses ash and basil to add savory notes to her coconut semifreddo, which features crumbled almond shortbread, almond lace, basil leaves and foam and passionfruit pearls. The almond components add crunch to the creamy semifreddo, while the nuts and basil add some depth to the bright tropical flavors of the passionfruit and coconut, resulting in a nice summery dessert.
