I think she is most likely referring to panettone which is a fruit-filled sweet bread that comes from Milan that is popular around the holidays. I am not too familiar with San Antonio but I have found it before at Central Market in other cities.
Yes,check out Central Market. Another source is World Market in the Forum at Olympia Hills off of I-35 North and loop 1604.Also,check out TJMAXX in the forum or the other locations.I know they have it because I work there partime.
Thank you both so much-I knew I had spelled it wrong. There's another World Market across highway from N. Star I'll check out. Never thought of TJMaxx. I saw a foodnetwork show with the italian guy making stuffing from it-looked good.
You can get it at Marshall's, TJ Maxx, Whole Foods, World Market, Central Market... I've even seen it at the 99 cents only store! usually in a strangely shaped cardbord box and in a blue or red color. and it will be spelled Panettone. It makes great bread pudding and french toast.
