What you'll do

This is not an ordinary cooking experience, this is a delightful journey around the myths and rituals for make and for enjoy the Sicilian Cannoli.

☺︎ I will guide you step by step trought my Sicilian family recipe to make the famous Sicilian Cannoli, a delicious dessert with cream goes straight to the heart. You will discover the key elements that make the Cannoli a real delicacy: crunchy peel, milk cream and chocolate.

☺︎ The Traditional cannolis recipe is with Ricotta Cream, but you can use Whipped Cream or Cream Cheese or Vegan Cream.

☺︎ With the same recipe we can make traditional cannoli (fried), baked cannoli (my own recipe), summer cannoli (with strawberries or raspberries, blueberries, blackberries) and also the "Chiacchiere": Italian carnival fried cookies.

☺︎ This online cannolis class is perfect for solo-explorers, families, friends, groups, holiday celebrations, birthday parties, date nights, team-building and Corporate Events. Write me for private class!

⌚︎ If you don't find availability just contact me.

⚠︎ Other things to note.
✔︎ It's a user-friendly cooking class. You don't need cooking skills, just the desire to make something truly delicious. Relax and enjoy the true spirit of Sicilian cuisine.
✔︎ One spot is for 1 person, not for the household.

I'm from Sicily, but live in Milan since 1999. My passion is cooking traditional Sicilian and Northern Italian food, Passion that's been handed down for generations in my family. I've been a creative home chef since I was a boy.

Since 2018 I’ve welcomed more than 1.000 people to my "secret kitchen" and I've received many hundreds of good reviews for my two Live Cooking Experiences. Guests have called it “An absolutely wonderful experience in Milan! ”, “truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience”, and “something unique”. Now I’m bringing my family tips to your kitchen with this Online Experience.

The cannoli class was such a blast! The instructions were easy to follow and the cannolis turned out delicious. We loved hearing about Italy and can’t wait to be there in person.

Such a fun experience!! Thank you, Gian - I've already made more cannoli for my family in the week since the class (and bought some fancy cannoli molds). Highly recommend!

I purchased this class as a fun experience to do with my mother-in-law for her birthday. We had a great time and making the cannolis was a lot easier than I expected. I was easily able to adapt the recipe to be vegan. Delicious!

This was a surprise birthday present from my family since we are unable to travel overseas during the pandemic, and it was so much fun! The cannoli turned out great and it was the perfect length of time - not something that you had to tend to all day - making those beautiful cannoli in 1h15m felt like a big accomplishment :) They tasted great and with the emailed + video instruction we were able to make them quite professional looking. I'm really happy we took this class! Thank you so much!
