We bopped into Eataly on a Sunday a month ago, and they were baking Lemon Brioche bread. Topped with sugar crystals on top. It looked delicious, and it came home with us.
I toasted mine and added just a touch (or two) of butter. Delicious. I loved the top edge.
And on to panettone #3 of our Buy 1 get 2 free offer at Eataly. We started with a chocolate version, then moved on a more traditional version of the cake (the Corsini brand), and ended with Eataly’s take on it.
I think my favorite was the Corsini. I liked the texture of the cake and the way it pulled apart. But I really enjoyed the bigger pieces of candied fruit in the Eataly version. That one me over, though M didn’t like that aspect of it.
So until next Christmas (or the next sale!)….
And this is our 2nd Eataly panettone we picked up at the “We went long panettone” sale. This one was very special as it came in a wrapped box.
We enjoyed it following a nice dinner with some Pinot Noir. This is what the Italians do, right?
This cake was delicious. It was light, sweet and sort of tore apart in layers. Definitely giving this a high rating, so far it’s the best!
Yes, it’s February. And I’m finally getting to panettone postings. The truth of the matter is, we didn’t get any panettone this year at Christmas! I was slightly bummed by that and was eyeing the few chocolate ones at Eataly 2 weeks ago. But we hit the jackpot last weekend, Eataly had a buy 3 for 1! At the lowest price. And since they average $26, we had to give in. Now, I’ll admit, that I do love this stuff when it’s actually Christmas time. But it’s great in February. Toasted with butter.
This was the version that comes with the powdered sugar that you throw in the bag with the cake and shake. This cake was studded with chocolate chips. We sprinkled on individual pieces. It was the Bistefani brand and pretty good.
But we have two more and I’m pretty sure we’ll be digging into another this weekend. Especially if it’s cold out…I’ll be inside with a big hunk of toasted panettone.
