    You know Italian Festival is this weekend. You could probably just swing by there before the party if you’re really in a pinch.

    That’s Right! Also, the aforementioned Cleveland Corbo’s will have a cart at the festival, as they do every year, dishing out their famous cannoli. You can get either plan, or chocolate chip! You may want to call them in advance at the Cleveland store and place an order to be prepared for you to pick up at the fair. :)

    I love making cannoli’s it seems tricky at first but after you get the hang of it there sooo good.
    Then you can try different things with them.

    Maybe I’m missing something here, but what else can you do with a cannoli other than eat it?

    Oh, sorry for the confusion, I was talking about the fillings. Yea there is the regular cream or the ricotta cream. However, you can also add things like cocoa, honey, or mint. It makes for some delicious treats. I know some would consider that ruining a connoli but I think it makes it interesting.

    ETA: I also think that sometime CU should have something like the pizza grandprix but with sweets.

    Somewhat unrelated, but I’ve been wanting to get a bulldog and name him Cannoli. I would love to be able to refer to a big fat bulldog as my Roly Poly Cannoli. :)

    If I want authentic items like Cannoli, I call my favorite local eateries if it’s not something they regularly produce. They can usually put me in touch with someone who makes the item from scratch, and do it well.

    I’m not a fan of ricotta cheese, so cannoli’s aren’t something I seek out. That being said, I’ve had some that were pretty good, on the lighter side actually. The rest are just meh at the very best. A lot of the ones I’ve had are commercially produced and sold in bulk (like the GFS brand) and are pretty heavy.

    I recall Basi Italia’s as being pretty good. Call a few Italian eateries and see what they recommend in the Cbus area..

    well, not really

    NO. I think it’s a brilliant idea!

    We can put it next to “Ye Olde Unnecessarye Suffixe Pub and Grille”

    Yeah, but some dipshit would probably think it’s called “Foot” or “Comma”.

    I haven’t found any in Columbus for retail purchase that haven’t been kinda gnarly (soggy, overly dry filling, etc), so I tried making my own. It really is a breeze, especially if you buy the shells and just fill them with your own filling right before serving them.

    Here’s my recipe: http://www.columbusfoodie.com/2009/01/03/cannoli/
