Cannoli are a sweet staple of Sicilian cuisine. Join Jen as she shares her family’s favorite recipe for these tube-shaped, fried pastries — one that’s been in the family for over 100 years! From mixing and forming to frying, you’ll learn to make the delightfully light and crunchy Cannoli Shells. Jen will also show you how to prepare Sweet Ricotta Filling with Chopped Chocolate to fill the cookies and two other cookies that can be made from the same cannoli dough!
About the instructor: Jennifer attended the Kendall Culinary School in Chicago in the mid 1990s. She’s cooked professionally as a caterer, line cook and pastry apprentice, but never stopped being a “home cook.” In 2009, she created a blog as an outlet for her culinary obsessions and a place to store and share all her recipes: celerycarrotsandonions.com. She hopes to inspire her students to stand lovingly over a simmering pot, wait anxiously for rising dough, marinate, brine and — most importantly — make it yourself!
