Buon Natale from Seggiano… Truly artisanal Italian festive food

The Christmas collection from Seggiano celebrates truly artisanal festive food from producers in Italy who have been perfecting their craft for generations. Top quality ingredients are at the heart of the recipes, with products curated into a bespoke collection perfect for gifting, or simply for enjoying with family and friends at special times.

Whether it’s the evocative flavour of lemons from Sorrento used to make Amalfi Coast limoncello panettone, or the earthy undertones of candied chestnuts from Cuneo, the small team at Seggiano carefully sources every single one of their products from specialist, innovative producers, making for a truly magical and luxury festive range.


Chestnut Panettone

This artisan sourdough panettone is naturally leavened with a 40-year-old mother yeast which brings incredible depth of flavour. Master baker, Beniamino’s skill guarantees a deliciously moist cake, made with organic free range eggs, local acacia honey and rich marrons glacés (candied chestnuts).
Price: £15.45 for 500g cake

Chocolate Panettone
The latest addition to the Seggiano panettone collection. This decadent chocolate panettone from the Lombardy region of Italy is made with only the finest organic eggs and butter. The dough is fragrantly light, yet deliciously rich and chocolatey.

Limoncello Panettone
The evocative flavour of Sorrento lemons that are used to produce the Amalfi Coast limoncello liqueur for this panettone sing through in every bite. Baked by Seggiano’s expert baker Beniamino in his Lake Garda bakery, this heavenly panettone is layered with creamy limoncello marmalade.
