Cannoli consists of tube-shaped shells that have been deep fried and filled with a sweet, creamy filling.  It’s a Sicilian dessert, meaning “little tube” and has become a very popular Italian-American cuisine.  In Italy, they are commonly known as “Cannoli Siciliani”.

Cannoli shells can be bought or made from scratch. If you don’t like the idea of deep frying, you can try these three options instead:

Chilled berries with white chocolate sauce

This is a very simple recipe from The Ivy restaurant in London.  It’s catching on fast in the UK and is starting to spread to quite a few restaurants.  Next time you’re in London why not pop into The Ivy and order a sweet treat after lunch – or make it yourself! It really is fast and simple...and VERY, VERY delicious - perfect for your waistline!

German Potato Salad

I will never forget the first time I tasted German Potato Salad…we were at a house warming party and there was a lot of German food, of course and being new to the country, I was excited to try out new things.  I didn’t however, expect their potato salad to be VERY different from what I was used to.  It had a sweet and sour taste to it, so when I took my first bite – well, I dread to think what my face looked like...

There are so many variations to the potato salad in Europe – the one that surprised me most was German Potato Salad, it took me a while to get used to that taste.
