Here are our top picks for foodies, home cooks and party hosts this festive season.
Sal de Riso
This Limoncello Panettone is one of our all-time favourite flavoured panettones from Sacla'. It is filled with a limoncello cream and liberally doused in Limoncello too. Half pudding, half cake, this is a sweet sensation that’ll get everyone talking. Salvatore de Riso brings you a taste of the Amalfi coast just in time for Christmas.
For this Classic Panettone, the mother is its secret to the signature texture and creates tearable soft strips. This mother is only allowed three authorised visitors. No-one else is permitted through the locked door. A grandmother is secured in a local bank vault. Nothing is left to chance. And so the precious mother – close to 100 years old – has been baked into a panettone just for Sous Chef. Combining it with the best ingredients is key. A high butter percentage. Free-range eggs, of course. Aromatic and juicy citrus fruit. Slow-proved, baked, and finally wrapped by hand. This is celebration cake at its best.
Blondie's Kitchen Bite Size Before Guys Cookies are teeny tiny signature Blondies Kitchen cookies in their bestselling flavours. There are around 50 cookies per box (the exact number will vary depending on size of cookies as all cookies are handmade).
