This Christmas, The Fullerton Hotel is offering two types of panettone or sweet Italian Christmas bread. One is more traditional, with lemon peel and zest, orange peel, sultanas and almonds, while the other is a chocolate version - its rounded top is coated with lush Amedei chocolate and speckled with toasted macadamias and granules of crystal sugar.
The hotel's chocolate panettone ($33 each) is glorious. Not only is the chocolate topping a decadent touch, but the bread itself is also soft and light, with swirls of chocolate throughout the loaf and flavours of citrus peel.
Eat it just as it is or lightly toasted and served with cream, ice cream or a vanilla sauce.
Festive hampers, which include a panettone, start at $198 nett.
