A 1kg Colomba from Milanese bakers Cova, studded with dark chocolate drops.
The panettone is famous the world over as a delectable soft moreish bready Christmas cake. But try and find a panettone in Spring and you may well be disappointed. Thankfully, Easter has its very own version, the Colomba di Pasqua (“Easter Dove”). A colomba is very similar to a panettone (a sweet bread loaf often studded with candied peel) but has a distinctive dove shape.In 1930 Giovanni Cova, one of Milan’s most famous bakers founded G. Cova & Co, a company dedicated to artisan, traditional methods and the finest ingredients. Lina Stores has been working with Cova for several years now and we absolutely love their panettoni and colombe, and the beautiful packaging that is so much a part of the Cova experience.
