Making a successful Panettone recipe

The Chef’s advice

The success of a Panettone recipe depends partly on the starter and how it is maintained. Working with natural leaveners requires patience, precision and passion. Once the starter has been created and has acquired potency, it has to be constantly checked and supervised so that it doesn’t lose its power over time.
