Merry Christmas from the Ocello Team we hope it is a delicious one!!!!
Panettone is a rich and fluffy cake which was first created in the 15th century by Milanese bakers, who chose each simple ingredient to symbolize luck and prosperity. Today, Italians give Panettone to offer good wishes. Simply enjoy with a good cup of coffee or tea !!
What distingushes a good Panettone? It must be moist and not dry! Our Panettone is rich and full of juicy candied fruit and raisins and once opened will keep moist for at least 10 days.
Should it become a little dry, this is the perfect time to toast it spreading on some good Italian butter. Pure indulgence!

Add some good Italian Butter – check out our 1889 Salted Butter
This is an amazing artisan butter made with cream that is allowed to settle naturally over 72 hours. This method enhances the softness, the spreadability and the rich flavour which has hints of blanched almonds, alpine flowers and rich, creamy milk. In honour of the traditional recipe, the butter is named ‘1889’ – the year the producer’s great grandfather was born.
This salted version contains 2% Trapani sea salt – a fine salt protected by the Slow Food Presidium.

We love cheese at Ocello, and especially Italian Slow Food Cheeses that we select and import ourselves. We were thrilled to be able to join the Italian Food Festival on Sunday 26th August 2018 and more to showcase on Channel 7 some of our unique artisan Cheeses. Check out the video of Carmelo Ocello talking about Pecorino.
We are chuffed to have been listed as one of the world’s most amazing cheese shops over on the UK Telegraph website. You can read the story here.
Ah autumn – that time of year when you try to soak up the last rays of summer sun, then move inside to enjoy your cheese and wine as the nights get cooler. Cheese-wise, it’s a great time to enjoy washed rinds; matured mountain cheeses from Europe made with summer milk in previous years; and locally-made, matured goat’s milk cheeses. Here are our ‘best of the best’ picks for the season:
According to the Chinese Zodiac, 2015 is The Year of the Sheep and we think it’s a fantastic opportunity to explore the delights of sheep’s milk cheeses. You may not know it, but you’ve probably already tried sheep milk cheese as some all-time classic cheeses are made using 100% sheep’s milk including Manchego, Pecorino, Roquefort and traditional Fetta. Sheep’s milk cheese has been around for thousands of years – in fact, it’s likely that sheep’s milk was used to make some of the first ever cheeses, as sheep were domesticated before goats and cows.
