Cannolis, Cassatines and Mille Foglie

Chicago Magazine (in the recent “Best of Chicago” rankings) voted one of my favorite bakeries, Pasticceria Natalina, as the producer of the best cannoli in Chicago. Though the cannolis are decadent and far from any other “cannoli” you may have eaten outside of Italy, this little Sicilian bakery beckons the adventurous taste buds — everything tastes as good as it looks. Two of my favorites are the mille foglie and the cassatine tea cakes.

Below is a TKGO original video on Pasticceria Natalina, where Natalina explains her methods as she goes about the daily grind in the kitchen. Enjoy!
