I have a question about the recipe "Gianduia Semifreddo (Chocolate-Hazelnut Frozen Dessert)" from Emiko. Does it matter if the egg whites for the Italian merengue are "aged" or at room temp?

Here's my guess: no.

Since the recipe makes no specific mention of "aged" or room temperature egg whites, my assumption is that the dish can be successfully executed with commonly available ingredients, like refrigerator-temperature eggs (separated).

Admittedly, I have not folllowed this particular recipe, but that would be my M.O. if I were to try.

Anyhow, good luck.

If you want to "age" your egg whites quickly, and you have a microwave, you can zap them on defrost for 5-10 seconds. I typically put them in a ziplock bag for this process... but I imagine it could work in a normal bowl. It helps a lot for macarons ! (With regard to your recipe... I think the previous comment is great !)

Thanks for the tip for the egg whites, I'll definitely try that if I forget to plan ahead and age my egg whites next time I make macarons.

Not sure if this recipe is different than any other semifreddo but we made one recently and did nothing special with the eggs, turned out fantastic.
