Here Is Peter Som's Favorite Thanksgiving Recipe

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here., unlike plenty of retailers out there, has noticed that there's a holiday between Halloween and Christmas. To celebrate the little holiday that could, they have asked fashion designers and stars like Jason Wu, Tory Burch, and Rachel Roy to contribute their favorite Thanksgiving recipes. It was hard to pick a winner, but Peter Som's Panettone Bread Pudding a) sounded delicious and b) was really, really fun to say ten times fast.


10 cups cubed panettone
2 cups half and half
1 15 oz.-can pure pumpkin
1 cup dark brown sugar
2 extra-large eggs
1 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise, and seeds scraped out
1/2 cups golden raisins.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Trim crust of panettone, cut into 1-inch cubes and place on sheet pan in single layer. Place in oven for 10 minutes until slightly browned. Place in buttered baking dish.
Whisk half and half, pumpkin, dark brown sugar, eggs, spices, and vanilla bean in large bowl. Mix in raisins. Pour entire mixture over bread cubes and let sit for 10 minutes. Bake for about 40 minutes until golden brown and—voilà! you’re ready to eat, preferably with sweetened whipped cream. Or ice cream. (And yes, this makes good morning-after leftovers!)
