Panettone is a sweet and tall Italian brioche, made with candied peel and raisins for the Christmas season. Like many people, I was attracted by the look of it in many shops and would always end up with dry – and sometimes crumbly – cardboard to eat. One day, I decided I had to stop the torture and would never have it again in my life.
Then, like 5 years ago, an old Italian patient started telling us about this amazing panettone. She brought one up for the team to share, and that’s when I realized how good a panettone can be !!! It’s DE-LI-CIOUS !!! It’s super soft, fluffy, with hints of butter, vanilla and orange. Even the raisins didn’t bother me. We finished it in one day and every year since then, this lovely woman brings us one for the Christmas season!
I’m now like a child, not waiting for the toys, but for my panettone. One year, I even tried to cheat and browsed the internet to have it delivered but no shop had it. Then 2 or 3 years ago, an Italian supermarket decided to sell them, and I now store them until the next year (they’re all sold out 2 or 3 weeks before Christmas)!
