Pannetone - Looking for

As some of you may know, I like making my own - marshmallows, english muffins etc.. and this month in Gourmet, there was a recipe for Pannetone. I LOVE Pannetone, but have just never found one like I had in Italy many moons ago. So, I want to try this recipe - BUT I don't know where to buy the paper/cardboard collars that you bake them in. Has anyone seen any anywhere?

I am dying to try out this recipe but can't/won't with the proper tools.

  1. Have you called Dante? They might have, or might know who would.

        Milano might also have them or know where to get them. Or, in a pinch, wouldn't parchment paper work too? (nowhere near as nice-looking, I know...)

        As an aside, I think it's way cool that you're making your own Pannetone - I'm no slouch at making my own stuff, but that is one intimidating project. Hope it turns out well!

          Well, I've never met a recipe I wouldn't try. The one in Gourmet sounds very doable. I tried Milano in previous years, they never had. But Quincaillerie Dante, why did I never think of there???? Dummy

            Let me know if they don't have it and I will ask my secret source on your behalf. :-)

      2. There think there is a kitchen gear store across Atwater market, near the supermarket on the east side of the street that loops around the market. I'm pretty sure I saw baking collars there a few years ago. I haven't been to Atwater in a good while so I need someone to confirm if that store is still there.

        1. Decor France - A bakery supply store. 890 Henri Boussard in North Montreal. I was there today and saw them.

          1. Indeed France Decor (also named Vixit)or ABC Emballuxe 650 Crémazie Est. East of St-Denis. Not sure if they sell small quantities. Check opening hours of both, they mostly tend to commercial clientele.
