Shaped like a crown and wrapped like a present, this panettone is a royal treat. The sweet bread is a mainstay of the Italian Christmas dinner, appearing on pretty much every table across the country. Rustichella d’Abruzzo’s version is springy and chewy; light and fluffy; dense with fillings while maintaining a delicate texture. Studded with candied fig and dark chocolate, it’s a perfect dessert with a glass of moscato. Or serve with a smear of Arethusa Dairy Salted Butter for an exciting breakfast.

"This classic Italian holiday favorite is good with English clotted cream or a cup of coffee, but you haven't lived until you've made the leftovers into ultra-decadent French toast."

  • Legend has it, in the 15th century, the Duke of Milano, Ludovico il Moro, threw a magnificent Christmas Eve feast for all of his royal court, where panettone was born.
  • Somewhere between challah and babka in texture, this panettone is delicious served with fresh berries and Murray’s Mascarpone.
  • This also makes a wonderfully decadent French toast, especially drizzled with Crown Maple Syrup.
  • Founded in 1989, Rustichella d’Abruzzo is an Italian, family-owned company that specializes in rustic pastas.
  • The company is rooted in a pasta-making tradition—the grandfather of current owners Gianluigi and Maria Stefania Peduzzi started his own pasta factory in the 1920s.
  • The Peduzzi family uses only the best semolina from local durum wheat as the base for their pastas.
  • Once mixed with mountain water, the pasta is pressed through a traditional bronze die, giving it a distinct, hearty texture.
  • The pasta dries slowly, at low temperatures, to develop a rich, toasty flavor that sets it apart from the typical noodle and has earned widespread praise.
  • In fact, when their spelt pasta was featured in a New York Times article in 1991, the company’s San Francisco distributor sold out of the pasta within hours of the story’s publication.
