Panettone & Pandoro
The story of Panettone
In the 15th-century, the Duke of Milano, Ludovico il Moro, threw a magnificent Christmas Eve feast for all of his royal court. The time came for the final dessert course, but ... the head pastry chef, distracted by a forbidden romance with a nobleman’s beautiful wife, left the dessert to be burned to a crisp. All he had to work with was a few scraps of orange peels, some raisins, and leftover dough from the dessert that had been resting for three days. He added the remaining sugar and butter to the cured dough, dotted it with the citrus and raisins, and tossed the mixture in round pans and into the oven. Rich yet fluffy, the sweet dome-shaped loaf was such a success across the court that the Duke called the pastry chef back into the hall to praise him. Amid applause, the pastry chef admitted that it was the pane di Toni (Toni’s bread) which eventually became known as panettone.
The story of Pandoro
In Verona, Pandoro, or “golden bread,” was enjoyed by the Venetian aristocracy as early as the 18th century. Thanks to a prosperous spice trade, powdered sugar began replacing honey as a sweetener in desserts. Pandoro is made from a rich, eggy dough, with a texture that resembles that of French brioche. The recipe for Pandoro was perfected in the Venetian city of Verona. The shape of the cake is modelled after the mountains outside of the city. A dusting of powdered sugar over this dome-shaped cake creates the wintry effect of a snow-topped mountain.
