The best panettone in Toronto

Panettone, a beloved Italian sweet bread, has a history as rich as its flavour. Originating from Milan, its roots can be traced back to the Roman Empire. Crafting this delectable treat is an art that involves a meticulous process, taking several days to achieve the perfect balance of light, airy texture and rich, yeasty flavours. From classic renditions to contemporary twists like the indulgent Chocottone, these sweet treats have become a festive staple, offering a taste of tradition with a touch of innovation.
