Carnevale is upon us, and to help us celebrate, since we can’t be incognito, frolicking out on the streets, I thought we could enjoy making cannoli together from my kitchen to yours. I hope you’ll join me for a fun online cooking class, when I’ll share my knowledge about this world-renowned Sicilian pastry!
For centuries, cannoli were only eaten when the sheep were making milk, generally from the late winter through the spring. Carnevale, the street party before Lent when all goes topsy-turvy, was the height of cannoli consumption. This beloved pasty was the ancient ice cream cone! Imagine yourself strolling down the avenue suckling on one among the revelers! If you’ve been on a Cannoli Crawl, seen the Fusion Box Films documentary Cannoli: Traditions Around the Table, listened to my interview with Mike Fiorito the Meatball and Spaghetti Artist Podcast, or read my article about cannoli for The Inquisitive Eater, then you know all about this delightful-fried-tube-filled-with-sweet-ricotta’s significance during this festive period.
I hope you’ll join me!
