Remove from the heat and continue whisking until cool. Whisk the cream until soft peaks form and gently fold into the egg mixture. Reserve 2 cups (500ml) of the mixture and pour the remainder into a 3 litre-capacity (12 cup) dish.

Fold the reserved mixture through the pureed raspberries and spoon stripes over the semifreddo. Place in the freezer for 4-6 hours or until set.

Serves 10.
