Don't come home without CANOLI!
I am on a mission to bring rock em sock em canoli (plural?) to a dinner party tonight with a Italian theme.
I work downtown and the party's betwix Beverly Hills and Hollywood.
The last canoli post on the board was a couple years ago (I LOVE the new search feature), so I think it's time for an update.
Bring me ricotta or bring me death.
Long live the Chow.
You could always get the shells and the filling separate at Eagle Rock Italian Bakery and fill them yourself with a $1 piping tip and a $0.01 zip top bag... I don't know any Italian bakeries between downtown and BH.
They also have great cannoli at Pinocchio/Monte Carlo in Burbank, if that's any easier... but I don't know if they do the filling separate for takeaway.
You can get cannoli at Sorrento. It's an Italian market/deli in Culver City that folks around cc really like; lots of interesting Italian groceries, family owned and operated. I am no cannoli expert, but they tasted pretty good to me.

Also: use the search engine to search "cannoli" with two "n"s and you will find more prior posts than if you search "canoli" with one.
al gelato actually makes pretty good cannolis, that are freshly piped in and ultra rich, i think it's two to an order.
