What you'll do

This is not an ordinary cooking experience, this is a delightful journey around the myths and rituals to enjoy the Sicilian Cannolis. This is great experience for team building, birthday parties, family or friends activity.

I will guide you through my Sicilian family recipe to make the famous Sicilian Cannolis, a delicious fried dessert with ricotta cream goes straight to the heart.

You will discover the key elements that make Cannoli a real delicacy for gourmets who will not be able to resist the temptation to try it: crunchy peel, ricotta cream and chocolate chips.

Please Note
ONE RESERVATION FOR EACH PERSON

Gianfranco was personable, made something intimidating such as making cannolis approachable and a fun activity. He was friendly and encouraging, as well as gave examples how mistakes can always be turned into something delicious.

We have taken a few cooking classes online for some fun during the pandemic. This is definitely a great way to spend an afternoon. Gianfranco is very friendly and certainly knows how to make a great cannoli! We enjoyed our time both in listening to Gianfranco and his stories and of course learning how to make one of our favorite desserts.

It was such fun to learn cannoli-making with Gianfranco. I had always wanted to make them but was a little nervous but Gianfranco was a great instructor. And, he was supportive of me doing a bit different vegan version that turned out great. Thanks for the instruction and the super dessert.
