There is something about cannoli, the perfect balance between crunchy and creamy, between incredibly sweet and unexpectedly flavorsome, that makes them to die for, enchanting the taste buds from thousands of years!  

Did you know that cannoli are around since Ancient Romans times? The spicy legend says that they originated between 897 and 1901 AD in the city of Caltanissetta when it was under the Arab domain, Kalt-En-Issa means
 “women’s castle.” The town was known for the large number of harems it hosted. Cannoli born in that castle where the expert hands of women create this masterpiece adding a new Arabian ingredient unused in cooking until then: sugar! Later, under Christians, the harem castles turned in monasteries and concubines turned into nuns (yes! Nuns!). Luckily for us, the tradition was passed on and cannoli became the world-famous dessert.
