The Story of the Panettone  @FilippoAvandero_bebeleonestylingPanettone in Italy is synonymous for Christmas. Every Italian family in every region of Italy celebrates Christmas with this traditional cake. Born in Milan in the end of the XV century, Panettone is surrounded by a few romantic legends; one of these stories sees it as a product of love, made from a lover who created the dessert to conquer the heart of his darling by increasing her father’s bakery’s sales. According to another story Panettone was invented by a clever servant who turned a disastrous dinner into an incredible success. Made of eggs, flour, butter, and filled with raisins and dried fruits, Panettone is nothing more than a sweet, rich bread, as stated  in its name ‘Pan de Ton’,  luxury bread.
