Looking for panforte
I'm looking for an italian bakery in NYC (or anywhere in the Northeast really) that bakes panforte, a traditional Tuscan italian dessert that resembles a fruitcake:
I've tried a few bakeries, but everyone seems to import it. Does anyone know of an traditional Italian bakeries here in the city that makes panforte?
re: Mike R.
Royal Crowh makes Pannetone, but Ive never seen panforte there (which is a northern italian item). or anywhere in a Brooklyn italian bakery.
I know people hate hate hate this kind of comment but panforte is very easy to make once you assemble the necessary nuts, candied fruit and honey. Carole Field has a very good recipe in her Italian Baking book and these days there are a lot online
Here is a link to an old discussion. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/573885
and to Judy Witt's recipe possibly the one mentioned in that string
