Tast­ing Notes from the Curator

Mot¬≠ta brings you a well-loved Ital¬≠ian clas¬≠sic and a vari¬≠a¬≠tion from your Panet¬≠tone. Il Pan¬≠doro is a soft cake with a nice gold¬≠en col¬≠or, rich in but¬≠ter, eggs, and with vanil¬≠la aro¬≠ma for an unmis¬≠tak¬≠able taste. Typ¬≠i¬≠cal¬≠ly a Veronese prod¬≠uct, pan¬≠doro is tra¬≠di¬≠tion¬≠al¬≠ly shaped like a frus¬≠tum with an eight-point¬≠ed star sec¬≠tion. It also said to be called the ‚Äč‚ÄúVerona Christ¬≠mas Cake‚ÄĚ


Although Pan¬≠doro can be enjoyed as is with a cup of cof¬≠fee or some mulled wine on the side. If you‚Äôre look¬≠ing to spruce up this soft cake, there are a cou¬≠ple things you can do. You can warm up a few slices of Pan¬≠doro in the oven and serve with a scoop of fresh gela¬≠to. Lat¬≠te, pis¬≠ta¬≠chio and choco¬≠late gela¬≠to makes good part¬≠ners for this cake. If you have some mas¬≠car¬≠pone lay¬≠ing around ( or if you‚Äôre feel¬≠ing great, you can get our Opti¬≠mus Mas¬≠car¬≠pone )‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČyou can choose to mix fresh mas¬≠car¬≠pone with eggs and sug¬≠ar and serve along¬≠side a few slices of Pan¬≠doro and top with fresh berries!

A Hun­dred-Year Old Tradition

In 1919 the young Ange¬≠lo Mot¬≠ta found¬≠ed an arti¬≠san lab¬≠o¬≠ra¬≠to¬≠ry of con¬≠fec¬≠tionery prod¬≠ucts, the Ange¬≠lo Mot¬≠ta Pas¬≠ticciere . Its flag¬≠ship prod¬≠uct is panet¬≠tone: Ange¬≠lo revis¬≠its the orig¬≠i¬≠nal recipe, to cre¬≠ate the unmis¬≠tak¬≠able high and soft dessert. In 1925 he inau¬≠gu¬≠rat¬≠ed the first shop in the Car¬≠lo Alber¬≠to gallery, and at the end of the 1930s the first fac¬≠to¬≠ry opened. But this is only the begin¬≠ning: between ‚Äč‚Äė37 and ‚Äč‚Äė57 the pro¬≠duc¬≠tion grows 7 times: since 1950 Mot¬≠ta pro¬≠duces icon¬≠ic prod¬≠ucts such as the first ice cream on a stick and the first snack. Then comes the stuffed panet¬≠tone, the Tartu¬≠fone, Today the com¬≠pa¬≠ny has expand¬≠ed, bring¬≠ing new prod¬≠ucts such as this Pan¬≠doro and reach¬≠ing new places all around the world with the aim to make Ital¬≠ian Christ¬≠mas Clas¬≠sics well-loved everywhere!
