LEGGENDA DEL PANETTONE



LEGGENDA DEL PANETTONE

Nel 1400, Milano era governata dal Duca Ludovico il Moro, molto amante delle feste e dei banchetti.
Durante il cenone di Natale, mentre tutta la servitù era impegnata a servire in tavola ed il capocuoco era indaffaratissimo con i piatti di carne, a sorvegliare il forno era rimasto solo Toni, il servo più giovane, un ragazzo di dodici anni.
“Toni, stai attento alle focacce che stanno cuocendo”, gli aveva detto Ambrogione, il capocuoco, ma il ragazzo, stanco per la fatica, si addormentò.
Quando si risvegliò, al posto delle focacce trovò soltanto carbone e fumo: le focacce erano completamente bruciate!
Fortunatamente, Toni era un ragazzo intraprendente.
In un attimo decise di rimediare al disastro che aveva combinato!
Prese la pasta di pane avanzata, la mescolò con burro, uvetta, canditi, uova, zucchero e mise tutto nel forno.
Ne uscì una specie di pagnotta dolce!
Piuttosto che non servire più niente, Ambrogione accettò il rischio di portare in tavola quel dolce improvvisato, sperando nella fortuna.
Il dolce ebbe un grandissimo successo, il Duca in persona andò nelle cucine a complimentarsi e da quel giorno, il “Pan di Toni”, ovvero il panettone, nato per caso, divenne famoso!

I have tried translate but many words remain in Italian excuse...

I was curious to know what Smemorina was sharing with us so I decided to translate it into English for myself and others.

LEGEND Of the PANETTONE
In 1400, Milan was governed from the Duca Ludovico the Moor, much lover of the festivities and the banquets. During the cenone of Been born them, while all the servitude was engaged to serve in table and the capocuoco it was busiest with the meat plates, to watch the furnace it was remained single Tones, the young servant, a boy of twelve years. "Tones, you are careful to the focacce that they are cuocendo", had said Ambrogione to it, the capocuoco, but the boy, tired for the hard work, addormentò. When risvegliò, in place of the focacce it found only coal and smoke: the focacce completely they were burnt! Fortunately, Tones were an enterprising boy. In a moment determined to make up for to the disaster that had arranged! Taken the bread paste advanced, it stirred it with butter, uvetta, canditi, eggs, sugar and put all in the furnace. From there sweet round loaf species exited one! Rather than not to serve nothing more, Ambrogione accepted the risk to carry in table that improvised cake, hoping in the fortune. The cake had the largest one happened, the Duca in person went in sews some to compliment itself and from that day, the "Pan di Toni", that is the panettone, been born for case, divenne famous!

I found an explanation of Pantonne at a Recipetips site.

Pantonne: It's a Christmas Bread/Cake

Country or region of origin: Italy

Type of flour used: white flour (wheat) - usually bread flour

Description: A tall, dome-shaped yeast bread that originated in Milan, Italy and is served on festive occasions, especially Christmas. Panettone is enriched with eggs, butter, and milk, sweetened with sugar, and flavored with raisins and orange and lemon zest. It is usually baked in a tall, rounded mold such as a tall cake pan lined with parchment that extends above the rim of the pan or even a deep saucepan lined with parchment. There are several variations of the basic panettone recipe with some calling for candied fruits in addition to the raisins, or cocoa powder or chocolate, while other variations may contain nuts. Powdered sugar is occasionally sprinkled on top as a decoration. The original name for panettone was "Pan di Toni," or "Pan di Tonio," meaning "Tony's Bread," based on the legend of a Milanese baker, Tony, who invented the bread.
