A festive Italian-inspired dessert
I say "Italian-inspired" because there'd be plenty of Italian nonnas who wouldn't approve at all, but this bread and butter pudding is even BETTER with the Panettone.
Panettone is a fruit-flecked bread that originated in Milan, enjoyed over Christmas and New Year.

We are absolutely spoiled for Panforte in Italy, and this recipe of Philip Johnson’s is one of the best I have ever tasted. You'll find it in his book Bistro. I'll be making a big batch this weekend - some for us, and some to give to friends and family. Panforte makes a lovely gift.
Panforte originated in the Tuscan town of Siena, a UNESCO world heritage site, not far from Cortona. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Italy - talk to me about recommendations of places to see, things to do and restaurants to dine at!
