Back for 2021 we are pleased to be able to offer the fantastic Panettone from the Sicilian producers Fiasconaro .Each one of these artisan cakes is lovingly hand made using the very best traditional Sicilian ingredients
A little history lesson .........
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.
