The Panettone

Panettone, the ultimate Italian Christmas dessert.

The history of panettone is linked to a medieval tradition in the city of Milan, according to which the usual bread was enriched to celebrate Christmas holidays, such as France with gingerbread.

Panettone is a brioche made with flour, eggs, butter (a lot!), Sugar, candied fruit and raisins.

The Pandoro

Verona's Christmas cake.

Makes a good alternative to Panettone, for those who don't like raisins and candied fruit.

The color of Pandoro is golden yellow thanks to the eggs, it is also light and chewy, with a delicate flavor.

It forms a truncated pyramid, with an 8-pointed star base, designed by a painter Angelo Dall’Oca Bianca.

Often the Pandoro comes with a bag of powdered sugar that can be sprinkled on the cake upon opening, for those with a sweet tooth.

Panettone and Pandoro are usually enjoyed for breakfast or teatime, but also for dessert with sweet wine.
