Interesting facts about Cannoli…

A cannoli is a Sicilian pastry dessert that is an essential part of the cuisine of Sicily.  They are tube-shaped pastry shells filled with a sweet, ricotta, sugar and occasionally mascapone filling. Cannolis have a long and storied history and just as many variations.

Cannoli originated in Palermo and the surrounding areas. They date to the time when Sicily was controlled by the Arabs. It is believed that the cannoli was orginally an Arabic dessert. Historically, the pastries were made for the Carnevale, the festival season which occurs immediately before Lent. The festival is typified by masquerades, something like Mardi Gras. It is thought that the cannoli might have been a fertility symbol during the season. Now, however, cannoli are enjoyed year round across Italy. If you are looking for a sweet fix, come to Cafe Mangia to not only enjoy a fabulous meal but also finish it off with a incredible dessert.
