Now there are not a lot of Italians here in the Netherlands (as far as I know) but even here you find boxes filled with panettone popping up everywhere… And I have to honestly say I am not entirely sure if I like it or not. It can be unbarebly dry. Maybe that is because they are trying to sell the stock of two years ago or maybe it just needs to be that way… I haven’t figured it out really. It’s even true that panettone is technically not a cake but a bread. It’s originally from the region of Milan and is eating around christmas and New Year. And not only in Italy, but also in many other countries such as Spain, Portugal, Germany and Switzerland to name just a few. But the fame of this bread seems to spread. Why? I honestly have no idea.
