Make Christmas 2022 Merry!

In Italy, as in the UK, Christmas is a time to gather friends and family together to feast, exchange gifts and to celebrate the season. Every family wants to make Christmas 2022 merry with its own traditions, many of which centre around the dishes we serve and the treats we bake.

And, of course, almost everyone displays their Presepe or creche, depicting the birthplace of the baby Jesus, along with his parents, the animals that witnessed his birth, and the shepherds and Magi who visited him. Italian Presepe are elaborate works of arts, tiny villages abuzz with life, and are much more detailed than the typical creches seen in other countries.

Italian Christmas Products

Truly Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas in Italy without panettone, a buttery enriched sweet loaf studded with raisins, citrus and almonds. Its classic dome shape is instantly recognizable and when panettones start appearing on store and bakery shelves, we know that Christmas is coming soon. Originally from Milan, panettone is popular all over Italy and, in fact, the world.

Perhaps a little lesser known internationally but beloved by Italians, is the pandoro, a traditional Veronese sweet bread that is soft and light in texture, made with fine flour, sugar, butter, eggs and yeast. It’s baked in a tall fluted pan and is traditionally served sprinkled with vanilla sugar.

Make your Christmas even more special the Italian way by ordering our freshly baked panettone or pandoro filled with our creamy hand-crafted gelato. As with all of our products, only the high-quality ingredients we can source are used to bake these two Christmas treats for you.
