Preparation

Finely chop the nougat with the help of a food processor. Beat the egg yolks with the sugar until frothy, then incorporate the chopped nougat and rum. Beat the egg whites until firm, then whip the cream and incorporate both into the nougat mixture. Pour the mixture into moulds previously lined with cling film to prevent sticking. Prepare the fruits of the forest sauce by adding the fruit to a pan with the sugar and orange juice, and then simmering to reduce slightly before adding the cornflour. Cook a little bit longer, then blitz with an immersion blender and add the butter. Pour into a small bowl and set aside. Place the moulds in the freezer for at least 8 hours. Turn out the semifreddo half an hour before serving with the berry sauce on the side.

Tips
If you want to create something truly special and authentic, make your own nougat – the result is crispier.
Trivia
Berries are important for health: they contain lots of vitamins and antioxidants, especially dark ones such as blackberries and blueberries.
