On Wednesday, March 8, from 2-3 PM, IAA hosted our annual cannoli making event. Sign-ups ran the week prior and the turnout was great! The prices were $2 for 1 cannoli or $3 for 2 cannoli. At the event, we provided a simple recipe (details below) as well as the basic ingredients and tools to make the cannolis. Before the event, we listened to a presentation by Jordan Patterson, who is a Bryant student who studied abroad in Sicily. Since the cannoli originates from Palermo, Sicilia, he was the perfect guest to give us insight into the culture of the region. Next, students enjoyed assembling their own cannoli. The pictures below were captured during this time. As always, the cannoli making event was successful and we are looking forward to carrying on the tradition next year!!
Cannoli Cream Recipe:
