Next Up: Panforte
Here’s something a little different, a bread (“pan”) that’s actually more like a confection. It comes originally from the city Siena in Tuscany. There are probably as many ways to make it as there are people in Siena. I like Gina De Palma’s version, so we’ll go with that. Apologies to reader Linda to whom I promised a pound cake this week. I promise I’ll do one next!

The nicest Panforte I have ever had was in San Gimignano, not too far from Siena, I still remember sitting in the sun with a coffee enjoying a slice, ok more than one slice if truth be told! I look forward to your recipe as I love panforte but I have never been all that happy with my attempts.
I remember reading some time ago that traditional panforte has candied pumpkin in it.
I’ll have to look into that, Bev. Thanks!
I’ll do my best, Bev. We’ll see. I generally leave it to Gina De Palma to give me something very interesting and tasty.
