Eat Well & Age Gracefully: Panettone

November 27, 2023 @ 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM


Monday, November 27, 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM. Eat Well & Age Gracefully: Panettone with Chef Barry Infuso. Sponsored by AARP, the class is free.

With the holidays approaching, panettone, the Italian sweet bread originally from Milan, is showing up on store shelves. Made months in advance, preservatives keep it soft.  

In this month’s Eat Well & Age Gracefully class, sponsored by AARP, instead of buying it premade, let your tastebuds savor the experience of tasting it fresh from the oven. Join Chef Barry Infuso and learn how to make and bake it in a paper bag, proving homemade is best.

The flavors are so amazing, you’ll never purchase it readymade again. Light, fluffy, buttery, and chock full of dried fruits, the yeast-leavened, mouth-watering bread is often thought of as dessert. Enjoy it with coffee, tea, or mulled wine. It’s yummy toasted, too.

A freshly baked piece and a hot beverage will start the class as a preview of the deliciousness to come. Traditionally made with raisins and citron, you’ll customize your dough with choices of raisins, dried pineapple, apricots, cherries, and candied citrus. You’ll take home enough dough to bake four 1 pound breads, enough to keep and give as gifts.
