Let’s see…five for us and 1 for the inlaws. Plus the one to come when MotH’s employer gives out the annual panettone for the holidays. That sounds about right, although there’s always the risk of succumbing to the 1/2 price sales come February. How many of these do you really need anyway?, is what the westie is probably wondering. She sat in to give an idea of what a half kilo (top) and 1 kilo bread (below) looks like, but these babies can be up to 5x larger and even more.
Our #1 favorite panettone continues to be from Ol Pastisser in Clusone (Bergamo), followed by Pasticceria Tabiano in Tabiano Terme (Parma). The fruit in the latter are bite-size chunks (as seen below), and the texture is soooo soft and soooo light that it feels like eating a slice of panettone cloud.
