CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS: the best Panettone Milanese - Made in...?
Panettone is a sweet cupola shaped bread loaf originally from Milan.

It is usually prepared and enjoyed for Christmas and New Year in Italy, and is one of the symbols of the city of Milan.
You might wonder what has a product of Milan to do with Kingdom of Naples.

Well, firstly Natale (Christmas) without panettone would be considered a sad Christmas for any Italian family.
Secondly, the winner of this year edition of `Re Panettone´ is from the Amalfi coast: the famous and acclaimed maestro pasticciere Sal De Riso

Salvatore De Riso discovered his passion for pastry after studying and working in the kitchens of the best hotels on the Amalfi coast. 

In the year 2000 he opened the Pasticceria De Riso on the seafront of Minori and in 2001 a second, larger artisan workshop in nearby Tramonti.

Within a few years his pasticceria became one of the best known and most important in Italy. Minori is now a popular destination for those who appreciate fine pastries. 
They travel to this seaside town specially to buy Salvatore’s products, evocative of the scents, tastes and traditions of the Amalfi Coast.

Here are some of his delicious creations for this holidays season:

Panettone Cilentano Pan di Bufala 
made with fresh buffalo butter and stuffed with:
white Cilento figs, walnuts, hazelnuts and white fennel.

Panettone Limoncello
made with limoncello cream and zest of Amalfi Coast lemons.

Panettone Stella del Vesuvio

Buon Natale da Kingdom of Naples!
