It’s the beginning of Christmas Week and that usually means mince pies for breakfast. Usually brought by friends travelling here from the UK. Obviously that isn’t happening this year, so by happy chance my friend Bizzy gave me this lovely panettone that is made at her Italian restaurant Maccheroni & Co. And it’s the very first time I’ve ever tried panettone, so may as well start with the best. I love it. Not sweet, more like a lovely citrusy raisin bread. Can be eaten plain, toasted with butter or (hope Bizzy isn’t reading this) even made into French toast. I plan to try them all.
