Panettone is the star of Christmas both in Italy and at Carluccio’s!
Pane in Italian simply means bread. That’s why so many of our cakes have PAN- in their name, and why we always say that a panettone is “part bread, part cake”.
Italians are all very proud of their regional traits and fiercely protective of local food traditions. Yet Panettone has managed to overcome regional boundaries to become the truly national cake.
Our Italian Bakers only make Panettone between September & December, so even if we wanted to stock it all year round, we can’t!
