Inspired by love and sustained through tradition, the story of Panettone originates in the 1400s with a young nobleman from Milan who had fallen in love with the daughter of a baker named Toni. Eager to impress her father and win his love's hand he created "Pan de Toni", a moist, subtly sweet bread laden with raisins and candied fruit, distinctive in its unique dome shape. No one knows whether the young man was successful in his romantic quest, but the fruits of his labor of love thrived as word of the delicate cake spread from the Alps to Sicily, quickly becoming the cake of all Italians. Today, people around the world mark holidays, special occasions and everyday gatherings with this legendary dessert. Share the traditional taste of rustic Italy with friends, family and loved ones and make every day a celebration with Panettone. Buon Appetito!
