Eataly now has its own global line of artisan panettoni developed by its team of gastronomical experts. The line features four flavors — classico, pistachio cream, orange and chocolate, and pandoro — all based on a traditional recipe of lievito madre (mother yeast), free-range eggs and Madagascar vanilla.
Located at 43 E. Ohio St. in Chicago, Eataly offers 50 panettoni and pandori from various brands, with flavors such as limoncello, chestnut, tiramisu, apricot, salted caramel, and more.
Italians typically bring a dessert or sweet treat when they are invited to someone’s home, and during the winter holidays, that’s panettone or pandoro.
“Because our customer loves this tradition, we aim to offer the best gifts possible with our wide selection of panettone,” said Dino Borri, global vice president of Eataly.
“In the past, just the classic panettone was common to eat in Italy. However, in the last few years, we have seen pastry chefs develop different flavors and new toppings — which is why Eataly has decided to select the top 50 to showcase in our stores across North America. We are also launching our own Eataly panettone with four unique flavors this year.”
The first Eataly opened its doors in 2007 in Torino, in Italy’s Piemonte region. The company now has more than 40 locations throughout Italy and across the world. The Chicago location opened in 2013 and was the second in the United States, after New York City.
