Sullivan Street Bakery--Pannetone review

chelabella | Dec 8, 2005 06:07 PM

I went to Sullivan Street Bakery on Tuesday because I heard they had fresh pannetone baked on premisis (73 Sullivan Street location). Ideed it was fresh, and charmingly packaged (.5 kilo loaf wrapped in plastic, in green pannetone box ready to carry). But when I got home and opened it, I found that it was actually burnt on the top and bottom of the loaf. The bottom was burnt enough that the paper was unable to be peeled from it. It was so disappointing. Then I cut into it and found that the dough had been overworked (you could see the spirals of where too much flour had been on the bench in the shaping stage of the loaf). It was $14, which isn't unreasonable for a good quality, fresh pannetone. But the one I got was so, so disappointing. I will of course go back and try it one more time. But for now, I advise that you ask to look in the box before you buy one!
