Having had some bad news this past week, knowing I had these goodies from Crosta & Mollica to try out gave me some peace of mind. Despite the bad news, I wanted Christmas to hopefully be as normal as possible for all of us and what better way than to have some traditional Christmas fare in the form of Panettone and Italian Golden Cake.
Crosta & Mollica themselves produce authentic Italian food from breads to pizzas (yum!) to jams and have recently launched their own Panettone. Now Panettone is something I’ve tried very rarely but heard a lot about so I was excited to try it. Problem is – I didn’t know how to serve it and that seems to be a common problem when it comes to panettone – people just don’t know how to serve it. Some dunk it into a hot drink, some use it in a recipe and some simply snack on it with some jam on the side. We were sent some conserves alongside the Panettone and Italian Golden Cake to sample and this is how we eventually decided to serve ours…
That’s right…we couldn’t decide so decided to snack on it with some conserve to the side which we could spread on – and let me tell you, it was absolutely delicious! I can’t wait to take a look and see whatever products Crosta & Mollica have to offer – if they taste as good as these, then I’m sure I will be impressed! I preferred the Italian Golden Cake to the Panettone but both were lovely and the conserves were absolutely delicious – packed full of flavour!
What festive food do you like indulging in at Christmas?
