Cannoli Bakeries Frying Their Own Shells

Jim Leff | Oct 31, 2002 11:10 AM

We're discussing over on the Boston board how very few bakeries actually fry their cannoli shells in-house.

Poster Linda From Boston mentioned seeing a food network program (perhaps a "Best Of") profiling a real old-fashioned cannoli place that does every step by hand....but she can't remember where the place was.

So, two questions:

1. anybody see the show and remember the bakery?

2. anybody know any other sensational cannoli places where shells are fried in-house?

The notion that there may be a cannoli on God's green earth more hypnotically toothesome than the ones at Boston's Modern Pastry fills me with trembling awe. I am myself a cannoli filled with chalky awe.
