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 through 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.

Fantastic experience, such an honor to learn this craft from a genuine Italian instructor. I loved hearing about his travels through Italy and different ways of preparing and eating cannoli/treats that we can try for ourselves in the future. Thank you Gianfranco!

This was amazing! He is so authentic and flows the class well. Also, setting-up the video to showcase all steps of the process was on point!

We did their experience for work and it was quite fun. I’d recommend to cook along with the chef instead of just watching.

Gianfranco did a fantastic job of telling you how to best prepare for the class and then walking you through the steps during class. Well taught and easy to follow! Would highly recommend!

Tasty and memorable experience. If you have a Target or grocery market with a great selection of cheeses, wines, etc nearby, that helps with gathering all the setup items in one place 🙂

Really fun experience. Gianfranco provides very helpful and clear instructions ahead of time to prep ingredients and equipment so that things go very smoothly during the actual live cooking session.
