Hello,
How many hours should be more or less in the freezer to be ready? To eat dinner is fine if I do it about four o'clock?
Thanks!

Hi Enrico, and welcome. Then, do you want a peach Parfait? In any case, any fruit you choose, you have two roads for the semifreddo: a more professional, with a semifreddo identical to that of bakeries but not long enough to prepare, and one that I call ' accommodated ', that is easier, still good but not perfect as the first. In the first case, you have to follow the recipe in the Parfait with meringue, whipped cream and fruit, in the second you can simply combine the mashed fruit to whipped cream and sugar.
Here's where you can find basic recipes. For the professional to do Italian Meringue Parfait (Here's the recipe: https://www.sicilianicreativiincucina.it/le-basi/la-meringa-allitaliana/) and you're just 150 grams, then 500 of whipped cream and peach puree 300. If you want to make the second type, You can follow this recipe by substituting the strawberries with peaches: https://www.sicilianicreativiincucina.it/cupcake-di-semifreddo-di-fragole-con-panna-bozza/. Of course on the amount of sugar also evaluates according to the sweetness of fruits. If you like the idea you can serve the Parfait with fresh peaches into pieces slightly caramelized fried with sugar and Mint. Let me know, I'm always here. ADA
