Let Panna Dolce Sweeten Up that Special Day
Panna Dolce specializes in bridal/wedding orders requiring personal customization as well as parties and events. Custom colors, flavors, and fillings are never a problem; they have even matched their macarons to the bride’s shoes – not an easy task. Using their online store, customers can personalize favors with message, photos, logos and monograms that serve as perfect mementos for any occasion.

Panna Dolce is the brainchild of three Chicago-based friends and partners, Katharine & Justin Greis and Lauren Robin. Katharine and Lauren run the baking and product development while Justin handles much the technology and marketing. The three friends came together in 2009 after a five year obsession with creating the perfect French Macaron! Their mission was to develop an authentic Laduree-style French Macaron that was true to its classic french roots yet resilient enough to ship cross-country. It took five long years, but they finally figured out the perfect recipe to make the macarons incredibly tender and delicious yet strong enough to handle the shipping process to any corner of the U.S. Each piece of perfect pillowy culinary art explodes with flavor. Flavors such as Key Lime, Almond Butter and Strawberry Jelly, and Chocolate Caramel Marshmallow headline their collection and have drawn a cult following of macaron devotees. Panna Dolce does not skimp on quality. They only use the finest ingredients and bake each macaron to-order to maximize shelf life.
Along the way, Katharine and Lauren invented three cookie recipes (Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Raisin Walnut, White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cranberry and Toffee Pretzel Peanut Butter Crunch) and a Brownie (called The Brownie to End All Brownies) too good to keep secret.
