Armando’s panettone with berries is a festive dessert made with Italy’s traditional Christmas cake, panettone. Chef Armando Percuoco created it to add a bit of moisture to this brioche-like bread, which some people find a bit too dry. We’ve used berries and mint for a red and green Christmas theme but take this versatile recipe as a guide and use whatever fruit you like. Armando used to add maraschino cherry liqueur, but these days he uses his homemade limoncello – Cointreau or Grand Marnier work well too, even grappa. And serve another nip of the liqueur or grappa alongside for a truly festive finish to any meal.
