Damerino Classic Panettone-Filippi
This traditional Italian cake is made from a dough of free-range eggs, fresh whole milk, cane sugar, Italian honey, and small quantities of Filippi’s mother dough, which has been cared for and kept alive for 40 years. The dough is scented with whole Bourbon vanilla beans and mixed with raisins and diced candied orange peel before being baked to perfection!
Filippi, a small, family-run pasticceria located in the town of Zanè, is one of the top producers of panettoni in Italy. Mother Maria and father Giuliano began the company in 1972, with genuine ingredients and family values and today, their sons Andrea and Lorenzo continue the tradition with the same devotion and enthusiasm.
For Filippi, doing business means improving the world. As a certified B Corporation, they voluntarily meet the most rigorous social and environmental standards. All their packaging is Forest Stewardship Council certified - the ribbons that adorn and distinguish their products are made with yarn obtained from recycled bottles. Their carefully selected ingredients are obtained from producers who care for and respect their animals, land, and workers. Whenever possible they choose local ingredients, such as honey from the Berici Hills in Italy.
Filippi’s philosophy is that excellent products prepared with respect, care, and passion, require a certain amount of time. Devoting the right time to each of their products is the secret to their success: time to develop product ideas, reinterpreting their family tradition and enclosing childhood memories; time to search for excellent ingredients - citrus peeled by hand and candied, free-range eggs, selected flours, fresh butter, milk delivered daily, Bourbon vanilla beans, and Italian honey; time to allow dough made from the same natural yeast base they have been using for 40 years to slowly rise, then be baked to perfection; and of course, time to taste, share and savor their delicacies until the last crumb.
