Before the session Gianfranco created a video to create the moulds on my request. So that was really great. During the session Gianfranco provided detailed explanation of the ingredients. The canolli turned out to be super delicious. A great experience. Gianfranco was very helpful and also shared images of Sicily.

Gianfranco è stato meraviglioso, divertente e super competente. La sua strumentazione per l'esperienza online è meravigliosa e rende l'esperienza veramente coinvolgente. I cannoli sono buonissimi ed è stato semplicissimo farli con le sue spiegazioni. Consiglio questa esperienza a tutti!

We had such a super time making Cannoli with Gianfranco. It's a great recipe and so much fun to make. My husband and I made them together and we also ate them all immediately after! There was also loads of interesting history and information about Sicily and the Cannoli traditions. Thank you much

Fun class - the cannoli we made with his guidance were super delicious, even though we ‘only’ oven baked them we were really pleased with the result. Gianfranco is a charming and flexible host, at times it was a little tricky to understand him between audio quality and his lovely Italian accent, but we were able to follow his instructions. We enjoyed the class and have the skills and lots of ideas to experiment now.
