Cannoli. If you’ve had the pleasure of trying it then you know how delicious it can be. And two Canberran chefs, The Cannoli Brothers, are making some cannoli to a recipe perfected over the last few months to exact flavour and texture profiles to make it just right to bring to market.

Though not actual brothers, Alessandro and Andrew are Canberran friends from way back who met at Uni many years ago, and have both returned to the capital after being chefs on opposite sides of the world. With a combined 60 years’ experience as chefs, the pair have started creating their delicious Italian pastries which originated in Sicily. Traditionally, cannoli consist of tube shaped shells of fried pastry dough filled with a sweet creamy filling, often made with ricotta.

You can catch the Cannoli Brothers and see what all the fuss is about at the Westfield Woden Truffle Festival on Saturday 22 July.


10AM – 3PM | Located next to San Churro

A Scooby Doo Jumping castle will be set up next to San Churro to provide some extra family fun.
