Badiani Christmas Collection: Indulgent Festive Treats with Italian Finezza

Friday 22nd Dec 2023 |

Purveyor of the finest, authentically delicious Italian treats, Badiani is bringing a taste of la dolce vita to this festive season with its luxurious new Christmas collection.  

Available from 13th November in all 14 of its boutique shops sprinkled across the capital and Windsor, Brighton & Lakeside (as well as online for nationwide delivery), the award-winning, luxury gelato producer has carefully curated a collective of crave-worthy, premium products perfect for foodie gifting or festive entertaining.  

Founded in Florence in 1932, Badiani is known as one of the most famous gelato producers in the world but the brand’s discerning taste extends far beyond the frozen. From quintessential Italian seasonal cakes to brand new scrumptious sauces, the exquisite Christmas collection will immerse lucky recipients in the ultimate Florentine experience, beautifully gift-wrapped in Badiani’s vibrant signature designs for that extra special flair. 


Panettone Classico – £32.00 (serves 8)

Badiani’s classic seasonal Italian sweet bread comes straight from its homeland and is made following the original baking tradition that involves curing the dough and proofing to make the cake deliciously fluffy. Badiani’s Panettone is bursting with candied fruits, raisins, and a zingy lemon zest finish. It is a lighter alternative to stodgier Christmas puds and pairs perfectly with a chilled glass of prosecco. 

Badiani will also offer an exclusive Olive Oil Panettone (£34.00 serves 8), available only in-store. This limited stock treat will be crafted using the same ingredients as the classic version, but with olive oil instead of butter to create a more savoury twist on the classic sweet bread.

Panettone Dark Chocolate – £34.00 (serves 8)

Exploring the darker, more indulgent side to tradition the new panettone flavour ticks all the boxes of the classic favourite with the extra decadence and richness of dreamy dark chocolate. 

You can enjoy a slice of either panettone in any of Badiani’s shops with a scoop of the signature, trademarked Buontalenti gelato or drizzled with their famous hazelnut and pistachio sauces. 

 Pandoro – £32.00 (serves 8) 

Like panettone, pandoro is made from a rich, eggy dough, similar to brioche. It’s baked in an eight-pointed star-shaped pan that gives it its signature form. Badiani dusts the pandoro with powdered sugar and recommends pairing it with their signature Buontalenti flavoured gelato or custard.  

The shimmering cake makes an elegant centrepiece for any Christmas table and, presented in a deep blue eco-friendly gift bag, it is the perfect present to take along to a seasonal shindig.

*NEW* Badiani Sauces – from £6.50

Badiani’s luxurious smooth, rich sauces have become almost as famous as their gelato. The perfect stocking filling, the tempting flavours of pistachio; dolcevita; chocolate & hazelnut; chocolate & orange; or chocolate & pistachio are as versatile as they are delicious. Drizzle over gelato as originally intended, or get creative and use it as the finishing touch to any dish requiring some added indulgence. Alternatively, just grab the nearest spoon and dig in – your secret is safe with us! 

In addition to the limited-edition Christmas collection, Badiani will continue to serve delicious artisan gelato, cakes, crepes and coffees throughout the festive season, ready to be enjoyed in any of their shops. They are also going to be serving up decadent hot chocolates and delicious festive desserts such as mince pies accompanied with their iconic buontalenti. 

For a taste of Italy this Christmas, visit Badiani in store or online from 13th November. Buon Natale!
