This Christmas, Crosta & Mollica transports delicious seasonal Italian treats to your festive table with their Christmas range including Classic Panettone, Chocolate Panettone and Pandoro. The light cakes encapsulate the gift of authentic Italian food, best enjoyed alongside family and friends to spread festive cheer – since nothing brings people together like good food, shared. The range will be available to buy on Ocado from 26th September 2022 from RRP £9.00.
Crosta & Mollica Panettone and Pandoro are crafted by artisan Italian bakers following time-honoured techniques. The panettone dough starts with a “lievito madre” (mother yeast), enriched with butter and free-range eggs. Each panettone is then slow-proved for forty hours to develop a distinctively rich flavour and light open texture, before being baked in a traditional tunnel oven until perfectly golden brown.
Sumptuous Christmas treats for any time of day, the Crosta & Mollica Panettone and Pandoro pair perfectly with both a cup of coffee to start the morning or a glass of prosecco to round off your Christmas dinner. In Italy, it is customary to take a panettone to people you visit around Christmas. Each Crosta & Mollica Panettone is beautifully packaged in modern, eye-catching recyclable boxes with a golden ribbon, making them the perfect dinner party gift for family and friends.
This quintessential Italian cake has a light buttery texture and is generously filled with candied citrus fruits and sultanas, the perfect centrepiece for every table during the holiday season. The Classic Panettone provides a tasty treat, either on its own or lightly warmed and topped with Zabaglione, the Italian custard.
The Chocolate Panettone is an indulgent, sweet cake studded with rich chocolate pieces, a decadent twist on the classic. Perfect accompanied by a coffee or as a deliciously moreish treat to finish off a festive meal. The Chocolate Panettone has also been recognised with a Great Taste Award for its outstanding flavour.
Translated to ‘golden bread’, the Crosta & Mollica Pandoro originates from the northern Italian town of Verona and is a light sponge, enriched with butter and free-range eggs. When dusted with icing sugar (included in the box), this star shaped cake resembles the snowy peaks of the Italian Alps at Christmas, making a show-stopping centrepiece.
