Farewell, Stefano...

April 20, 2015

There is news that we’d never want to receive... and, when we do, the news strikes us like a lightning bolt to the chest. On April 18, 2015, Stefano Leonardi, a great friend and professional, moved on and left us.

The ritual. Some take it for granted, and others neglect it, however, the cutting of the panettone cake should follow a well-thought-out procedure. First of all, the product should not be cold, but at either room temperature or slightly warm, because any heat promotes the release of its fragrances. We don’t want that! The paper around the panettone cake should be peeled off delicately. The paper wrapping that covers the bottom also needs to be slowly ... [read more]
