Flavored with lemon and vanilla, studded with their house-made candied orange peel, and coated with a crunchy toasted almond glaze, Sullivan Street Bakery's Colomba Pasquale comes packed in a beautiful custom gift box.

The colomba pasquale has become one of the quintessential specialty breads of Italy. Made throughout Italy as part of Easter celebrations, the colomba pasquale, or “easter dove,” is a sweet, fluffy bread baked in a parchment mold in the shape of a dove. The colomba is a cousin of the panettone, the classic Italian Christmas bread, and is made with natural leavening alone (no commercial yeast) to create a light, bubbly, flavorful dough that ferments for two days and enjoys a lot of extra attention. We bake these delicious breads exactly once a year—the week preceding Easter—so please enjoy while you can!

Celebrate Easter morning with a slice of colomba, enjoy a hunk for an afternoon snack, serve a bit with a glass of prosecco in the evening, and if there is anything left you will have the material for some of the world’s best French toast. (Our colomba keeps an average of three weeks at room temperature, tightly wrapped—but is most likely to disappear upon arrival…).

What a delight. This delicious once a year bread comes beautifully packed (not too much packing popcorn), in an ingenious pink gift box. Since it arrived too late for Easter, we enjoyed it ourselves, cutting in two, with one half going into the freezer, the other, the refrigerator. It was consumed over the course of a few days, though. And was delightful when lightly toasted and spread with unsalted, whipped butter. It really doesn't need the butter, but it did enhance the experience for us.
