Panettone Milano

$39.99 incl GST


Available from late November.


If Milan comes with some internationally recognized icons, Panettone is undoubtedly one of them. There is a long, centuries-old link between the city of Milan and Panettone, dating back to the Middle Ages, and many are the stories told about the creation of Milan’s most popular loaf. They include romantic and poetic stories of noble knights, charitable nuns or kitchen boys at the court of the City Lords. Between myth and reality, one thing is for sure: a 1395 decree allowed all Milan bakeries to bake the so-called Pan del Ton (meaning a valuable bread) for Christmas: a white loaf made from wheat flour, that even the poor could have on that special holiday. This “luxury” bread was at the heart of a Christmas tradition in Milan, the ceremony of the “tree stump”: on Christmas Eve, the head of house divided a Pan del Ton, handing out a piece to each family member as they gathered around the fireplace. In time, Panettone has become Italy’s most popular Christmas cake from North to South, with many producers scattered across the country.

The Locanda La Posta (Agroalimenta) has been in existence since the beginning of the 17th century. In 1804, Mr Vassalli, an Italian abbot and very important scientist, came to Cavour with the new instrument he had invented to measure the height of the Rocca hill, which is very close to the Locanda. During the centuries, the Genovesio family has given hospitaliy to many famous characters from the field of politics, economics and entertainment. Recipes and secrets are passed down from generation to generation to preserve the ancient tastes.
