What is Panettone?
Panettone is a Italian Christmas bread from Milan. Legend has it that it is the result of a pastry disaster that called for some quick thinking and creativity. The mistake turned to legend became know as Panettone.
The panettone we are talking about here is nothing like the stale, mass produced, boxed cakes you find in the department stores around town at Christmas.
These breads are made by hand, with the best ingredients, with lots of time for fermentation, and lots of love.
We start with the feeding of a natural mother which is a stiff dough that has developed into a wonderful natural yeast.
The mother is fed 3 times over 12 hours. Then some of it is put back for the next batch and the the first dough is made with the rest along with flour, butter, yolks and water. After a 12 hour fermentation at room temperature the final dough is made.
We take the first dough and add more flour, water, sugar, yolks, butter, honey, salt, soaked candied orange peel and golden raisins as well as other fruits and real vanilla.
