According to the Food Section, Italians are expected to eat 40 million panettone this holiday season. What is panettone? A holiday sweet bread originating from Milan dotted with dried fruit, usually rum raisins and bits of citron.

When the supermarket has red boxes of pre-packaged panettone stacked to the ceiling, it’s a strong indicator that the Holiday season is in full swing. Having heard tales of dry, stale and dense panettone, I’ve been hesitant to invest in some for myself. Luckily, my friend Gary, who works at Grandaisy Bakery, gifted me a loaf and I’ve been carving away at it like a turkey on Thanksgiving day.

Studded with zesty citron and plump rum raisins, and enhanced with a touch of honey, the panettone at Grandaisy is freshly baked. This panettone is perfect to soak up your morning coffee with but light and airy enough to eat on its own; totally unlike what I imagined panettone to be. When storing panettone, make sure to keep it wrapped tightly to prevent it from becoming hard and stale. Ok, now that I’m getting hungry, time to carve a slice for breakfast. Ciao!
