The story of Panettone

There are many delightful stories surrounding the history of panettone. Perhaps the most famous legend comes from the 15th century court of Ludovico Sforza in Milan. He held an extravagant Christmas banquet during which, Toni, a 12 year old kitchen helper was asked to watch the oven and make sure the dessert did not burn. He fell asleep and woke up in a haze of smoke. Desperate to avoid a beating, he created a new dessert – using any bread he could pain relief find, butter, candied fruit and raisins. Once tasted, the guests asked for it to be served at every Christmas banquet – and it became known as Pane di Toni (Tony’s bread) or Panettone.
