Pannetone - Looking for

maisonbistro Nov 23, 2008 11:54 AM

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.

    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.

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

        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.

          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. :-)
