While The Frenchman’s Corner specializes in Belgian and high end American chocolates, we also have some fantastic gift ideas and holiday baking supplies. We have a very good baking chocolate from Barry Callebaut that is perfect for all kinds of recipes.
This year, The Frenchman’s Corner is offering several variations of this bread for the 2018 holiday season. We are offering Albertengo panettone from the Piedmont region of Italy. They use nothing but the best ingredients to create their breads. Albertengo only makes two pastries a year, Panettone for Christmas and the other being the Colomba Pasquale for Easter. Since 1905 they have become the best, if not the best, panettone makers in the world. We invite you to stop in to purchase one of these delicious breads to share with your friends and family during the holidays.
