Italian bakery Olivieri 1882 is baking up a limited-edition product for Valentine’s Day next month. The heart-shaped panettone from sixth-generation pastry chef Nicola Olivieri is a special twist on traditional Italian sweet bread.
Most notably served during the holiday season, this version is made with Tahitian Bourbon vanilla beans, Italian wheat flours, raw cane sugar and Italian acacia honey. The panettone is then studded with Valrhona 55 percent dark chocolate and candied strawberries.
The bread, which serves five people, comes in custom-designed Valentine’s Day packaging with a bespoke love letter option. Priced at $54.90, shipping included, the Italian holiday staple is ushered fresh from the bakery, delivered nationwide in less than 48 hours. Orders can be placed on Olivieri 1882’s website or through Goldbelly.
