Pandolce Genovese is a typical Ligurian sweet bread made in celebration of the Christmas season. Said to have originated in the Middle East, and brought to Genova by traveling merchants, Pandolce is like a more rustic Panettone. 

When our chocolate buyer, Emily, traveled to Genova, she brought back this beautiful Pandolce. After tracking down the producer (usually the best producers are the hardest to find!) we finally made contact and prepared our first holiday order.

Many families will have their own particular, carefully guarded, recipe but each will be based on the same essential ingredients.  The Pandolce Classico from Berti is made with flour, butter, eggs,   yeast, sugar, raisins, candied fruits, pine nuts, milk, honey, baking   powder, lemon oil and vanilla.

This is a dense and crumbly sweet bread that is best served lightly warmed toasted. It reaches its pinnacle of flavor when paired with a steaming cup of coffee or a glass of marsala wine.
