Master Italian chef, Jasper Mirabile Jr. has declared the month of September "National Cannoli Month."
By decree of the master cannoli maker, Jasper Mirabile Jr, desert lovers in Kansas City will be able to enjoy a massive show of cannoli power during September! "I'm obsessed with finding the perfect cannoli!" says Jasper. I even invented a Cannoli Therapy Patch for people who need a cannoli fix. I dressed up last year as a cannoli for Halloween. The end-story in my cookbook is, "On the Cannoli Trail"...it's all about my search for the greatest cannoli in Sicily!
Cannolis originated in Palermo & the surrounding areas. They were originally made for Carnival, which is a festival that occurs before Lent. It is a crisp crust filled with fresh Ricotta cheese blended with other ingredients. It takes it name from it's long tubular shape & dates back to the time when Sicily was occupied by Arabs in the 9th century.
"Thirty Cannolis For Thirty Days"
Jasper's and Marco Polo's Italian Market will be featuring a different unique and creative Cannoli each day from Banana Cream Pie to Girl Scout's Thin Mint.
