Cannoleria is counting down to Christmas in the most fitting of ways – with a limited edition Cannoli range that will take customers on a festive journey around Italy.
Cannoleria always has an exciting flavour of the week and the special flavours of the “Viaggio di Natale” (Christmas Journey) range are inspired by much-loved traditional Italian desserts that are enjoyed at Christmas.
Starting on Friday 2nd December, each week leading into Christmas will see the launch of a regional-favourite inspired festive Cannoli.
From Friday 2nd December until sold out – Ferratelle (Lazio):
Cannoli lovers can take a trip to Lazio and surrounding regions with a Ferratelle-flavoured cannoli, inspired by the delicious Italian waffles named after the ‘Ferro‘ or iron press. Traditional Ferratelle can be hard and crisp or soft and chewy depending on the ingredients and method of preparation.
From Friday 9th December until sold out – Panforte (Tuscany):
Melburnians can taste Tuscany with this Panforte-flavoured cannoli inspired by the classic cake, famously known as Italian Christmas pudding. Panforte is packed with spices, dry fruits and nuts and means “strong bread”. Panforte goes very well with a cup of coffee.
From Friday 16th December until sold out – Paste di Meliga (Piedmont):
Piedmont is the next destination on this festive journey, with the Paste di Meliga-flavoured Cannoli. Paste di Meliga biscuits originated in the Piedmont Region and are one of Dario’s (co-owner of Cannoleria) favourite desserts. He loves them because they are made with polenta flour, a mixture of wheat and corn flour, sugar, vanilla, grated lemon zest, egg yolks and butter. A simple yet delicious dessert that is traditionally served with zabaione and a glass of sweet dessert wine, espresso or cup of tea.
Friday 23rd December & Friday 30th December until sold out- Caggionetti (Abruzzo):
Foodies will ‘visit’ Abruzzo with the Caggionetti-flavoured Cannoli. It wouldn’t be Christmas in Abruzzo if everyone wasn’t enjoying these popular ravioli-like biscuits that feature an interesting combination of fillings including chickpeas, cacao, grape must and cinnamon. Caggionetti were traditionally handed out after Mass during the festive season.
Each of the limited edition “Viaggio di Natale” flavour of the week Cannoli will be available at all Cannoleria stores and That’s Amore The Cheesery every Friday in December until sold out. The perfect way to taste the festive season!
