Catherine says: "Living in Ireland, I used to think of panettone as a very dry Italian Christmas cake until I tasted one that had been freshly made in Sicily. I was totally converted – I could easily devour half of one in a single sitting! I bake these as individual little panettone cakes for friends. They are so good served with a glass of dessert wine or even Marsala.
This is all the more delicious with the introduction of feta cheese, which is undoubtedly one of the most famous Greek cheeses. The salty, tangy flavour of feta pairs beautifully with the rich lamb sauce and is crumbled over the béchamel sauce. This dish is best prepared and cooked the day before; allow the flavours to infuse and then reheat the next day.
