Of course! "Pane Toni"! I knew him well haha. We do love to wrap the sweets in a gaudy manner but it's part of the festivities. My cookie trays are wrapped in colored cellophane and tied with a big bow. It's just the right way to do it! A very Happy New Year to your whole family :)


We love Panettone...we de prefer the fruit ones..but any will do. We wanted to bring some back from our hols in Italy..ones in a beautiful tins..I did buy one from our supermarket, but without the tin!!

How brilliant for your girls to get the chance to learn and become fluent in Italian.

Bona Natale.


ha! I love the "...wait for it..." And I really didn't know the story behind the name. I really enjoy this cake too - but I'll have to keep my eyes open for a chocolate chip one!

Only in Italy can that last line of your blog somehow be true!How marvelous that the girls are becoming so fluent in their adoptive language [complimenti signoria Amanda e signoir Julian.MY favorite of the panetone is the fruit infused one ,I find the creamy filled ones do not go well with a tea or espresso. Bona note e bon Natalie un altra volta.[yet again.
