Cannoli is a Sicilian pastry dessert. They are tube-shaped shells made of pastry dough, filled with a sweet and creamy filling usually containing ricotta cheese blended with some flavor of vanilla, chocolate, pistachio or other. Liz last trip in Italy was to Sicily.
Gelato ...I wonder what is the difference between gelato and ice cream.. I googled it again. Itz ice cream which is more creamy than usual ice cream. One main difference I found reading is : Ice cream legally has a minimum of 10 percent fat, gelato is made with a greater proportion of whole milk to cream, so it contains more like five to seven percent fat.
Focaccia is a flat oven-baked Italian bread, which may be topped with herbs or other ingredients.Focaccia is related to pizza, but not considered to be the same.
I enjoyed knowing these food from Italy. Mouth watering experience.. Will be back with the above recipes too....
