Not imported from Milan, did not go on an air freight, no additives or preservatives, this is a real deal 600g Panettone freshly baked in Hong Kong.
In addition to gingerbread men at Christmas, there is also panettone, a large fruity enriched sweet bread from Italy, commonly known as Christmas bread, which is a popular food on Christmas. This bread was named “pane di tono” by a Milanese writer Pietro Verri, which means gorgeous, luxurious bread. Among bakers, Panettone is often referred as The King of Bread.
The traditional Panettone is very particular on fermentation, involve bathing Pasta Madre, a traditional Italian sourdough starter in a water for 6 to 9 hours to inhibit the acidity of the starter, and also mixing the dough twice. The pores within the bread are usually in the shape of a straight strip, with a soft and delicate texture, and silky when it is torn.
Because of the soft texture and sweet dried fruit flavour, panettone is often served as dessert, coupled with a cup of tea or coffee as the best breakfast or afternoon tea. Cream cheese or mascarpone cheese can be added for extra flavour and smoother taste. In Italy, there is also a way to sprinkle icing sugar on panettone as dessert, and paired with sweet and refreshing sparkling wine for a perfect combination of afternoon tea.
