Every Christmas, the panettone, which originated in Milan, takes centre stage on the dining table. Even though it’s a dessert, Italian chef Paolo loves having panettone in the morning, soaked in his hot caffè latte.
He says that the panettone is said to have been invented by chance by a kitchen apprentice called Toni, who had some old, well-rested bread dough. He added some dry raisins to it and made a bread. Bread is “pane” in Italian, so the “pane” of Toni became Panettoni. Not everyone likes panettone, and if that includes you, Chef Paolo suggests trying Pandoro, which is originally from Verona and also very tasty.
