Panettone and Pandoroare classic desserts for the Holidays. For us, they are not just a treat on the Christmas table, we love to eat them also for breakfast and with every toast and celebration: from Santo Stefano to New Year’s Eve!
But Pandoro and Panettone alone can become a bit boring...so it is becoming a new tradition for me to add delicious creams to these desserts to make it even more difficult to resist!
While many families are divided between those who love Panettone and those who love Pandoro, there is no doubt that Torrone - Nougat - will be on every Italian table for Christmas.
The origins of Torrone are debated, some say it was the Arabs that imported this recipe to Sicily and that it was so loved by Roman Emperors that they made it popular all over the Italian peninsula and the rest of Europe.
What is undoubtedly true is that for such a simple recipe to turn out so good best quality ingredients and the experience of the “mastro dolciario” are the two things that matter most.
