We have for many years been importing a very popular a brand of Panettone made by one of the leading Italian producers of Panettone, Pandoro and other seasonal leavened cakes
Added to the panettone waltham abbey range this year we have a very limited supply of the superb Sicilian Panettone from the artisan producers Fiasconaro , we think these may possibly be the best you will ever taste !!
Panettone is the traditional Italian Christmas cake par excellence, and its birth is attributed to the city of Milan in the Middle Ages, although there are many legends surrounding its history: from the banquet of Ludovico il Moro (Ludwig the Moor), Duke of Milan, where a small attendant named Toni saved the day after the planned dessert was burnt, by an inventive creation with the simple ingredients left in the nobleman's pantry: a piece of leavened dough, flour, butter, raisins and little else, the famous sweet appropriately called Pan del Tonia (Tony's bread) was created.
