Tom and I had the pleasure of meeting some amazing interns from Streams Canada in Vancouver, BC. We instantly fell in love with them and wanted to take them home.
Over the weekend, one of the lovely young ladies came for a visit. She’s from New York and she bought cannolis. If you have never had a cannoli then you must try one. They’re a great Italian dessert. She bought a huge bag of the filling and the shells separately. (Pictured below. Aren't the mini shells cute?) The reason why she bought them separately is because the shells would soften on a long trip once it's filled. It tastes much better with a crispy shell. Usually the cannoli is bigger but these were mini cannolis and wow they tasted great.
So a big thank you to my Cannoli Angel, who knew the way to my heart is with Italian pastry.
