This holiday season, restaurateur Maurice Terzini (Icebergs Dining Room, Ciccia BellaBondi Beach Public Bar) has once again joined forces with Sonoma Bakery to bring Sydneysiders a festive treat: an extra-special, limited-edition panettone.

An Italian sweet loaf first created in Milan, panettone is typically baked and eaten during the holidays. The Icebergs and Sonoma version is made for Christmas lunches and dinners, too. But, as Sydneysiders first discovered in 2019, this one combines traditional Italian techniques with native Aussie ingredients — so, it's made for enjoying alongside a plate of fresh prawns next to the pool (or on the beach).

The 2020 panettone goes heavy on ingredients sourced from Something Wild and Daniel Motlop in South Australia, with a big focus on supporting First Nations communities. While the traditional version is studded with the likes of dried raisins, candied orange and lemon zest, this one uses sandalwood, davidson plum, lemon myrtle and green ants — with the latter giving it a citrusy flavour according to Icebergs head chef Alex Prichard.

These panettones are not simple creations in general, either. Each one takes more than 36 hours to make, including time spent hanging upside down — to keep the dome shape and the crumbly texture — as soon as it comes out of the oven.

If you're keen to nab a taste, the panettone is now available on the dessert menu at Ciccia Bella in Bondi and Parramatta and, of course, Icebergs. You can also nab a whole one for $65 to take along to your next Chrissie party from Icebergs and Ciccia Bella, as well as Woollahra's Victor Churchill, Newtown's P&V Wine + Liquor Merchants and natural wine bottle shop Drnks (online store only). Yes, this collab panettone is fast becoming a Christmas tradition.

The Icebergs X Sonoma panettone costs $65 and is now available to-go from Icebergs, Victor Churchill, P&V Wine + Liquor Merchants and Drnks online store. You'll also find it on the dessert menu at Ciccia Bella and Icebergs.
